12.19.16 - Bipartisan Bicycle Safety Legislation Signed Into Law

 

Rep. Sheehy (D-Oregon) today celebrated the signing into law of House Bill 154, legislation he introduced to improve safety standards for cyclists in Ohio. The bill, which was joint-sponsored by Rep. Michael Henne (R-Clayton) and passed both the House and Senate with broad bipartisan support, was signed by Gov. John Kasich this afternoon. 

“This common-sense legislation is so important to the safety of both motorists and cyclists while sharing the road,” said Sheehy. “Several cities and communities have taken the lead on this issue by passing their own bicycle safety laws. This legislation will bring uniformity to our state and undoubtedly make Ohio’s roadways safer for all commuters.” 

 
 

12.15.16 - Rep. Sheehy Urges Kasich To Veto Continued Energy Freeze

 

State Reps. Michael P. Sheehy (D-Oregon) today sent a letter to Governor Kasich urging him to veto House Bill (HB) 554, legislation that dramatically changes the state’s energy efficiency standards to unenforceable “goals” for the next three years.

“This legislation will undermine the economic and job growth of advanced energy businesses like First Solar in northwest Ohio,” said Sheehy. “Other leading businesses across the nation – and the globe – are turning to renewable energy sources to power their state-of-the-art 21st century facilities. Leading companies such as Apple, Coca-Cola Enterprises and General Motors have all publicly pledged to produce one-hundred percent of their electricity from renewable energy sources.”

 
 

12.08.16 - Sheehy Mourns Passing Of US Sen. John Glenn

 

State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) issued a statement in response to the death today of Ohio astronaut and U.S. Sen. John Glenn. Glenn, 95, was the first American to orbit the earth and later had a successful 25-year span of service as a U.S. Senator from Ohio.

“Senator John Glenn was a genuine American hero and an exemplary public servant. From humble beginnings in Eastern Ohio to an extraordinary career in military aviation, space exploration, and public service, his legacy will endure in the generations of Americans who find inspiration in his life and accomplishments. I wish to extend my sincerest condolences to the Glenn family, especially to his wife of 73 years, Annie.”

 
 

12.06.16 - Sheehy: Ohio Legislature Threatens Job Growth With Energy Standards Redo

 

State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today criticized the passage of House Bill (HB) 554, saying legislation that changes the state’s energy efficiency standards to unenforceable “goals” through 2019 will harm consumers and jeopardize thousands of manufacturing and development jobs in Ohio’s advanced energy industry. 

“Passing this bill threatens local businesses like First Solar, who employs twelve-hundred people here in Northwest Ohio,” said Sheehy. “House Bill 554 is a reckless measure that will act as an impediment to the growth of the renewable energy industry – both solar and wind. I believe this legislation puts the special interests of big business over the interests of Ohio consumers.”
