Have you seen the latest news?
An extreme, out of state, environmental group is looking to place a reckless constitutional amendment on Ohios ballot in November. The group, Yes for Ohios Energy, has obviously not learned the lesson from President Obamas failed energy gambles on bankrupt Solyndra and Beacon Energygovernment cannot pick winners and losers by throwing taxpayer dollars at an industry.
The amendment, which was certified by Attorney General Mike DeWine, would require the state to issue $13 billion in bonds to trendy green energy sources over 10 years. Yes, you read that right .BILLION! At a time when families are stretched to their limits, this group now wants Ohio taxpayers to pay $13 billion for research and development of unproven clean-energy initiatives.”
So just who would control these funds? An out-of-state commission incorporated through a secretive loophole in the state of Delaware! This group is seeking to send your hard-earned tax dollars to a mysterious group with no oversight! In fact, the amendment would forbid members of the Ohio General Assembly, who we have elected to represent our interests, from influencing any project selection or investments.
