04.12.18 - Rep. Fedor Announces Support For School Safety Bill

 

State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) yesterday announced her support for House Bill (HB) 318, which allocates $10 million for school resource officer (SRO) training, purchasing school safety equipment, and providing educational and mental health resources to Ohio schools.

“Standardizing and funding school resource officer training and mental health services for students are critically important methods of protecting our students, teachers and school staff,” said Fedor. “This legislation will better prepare our school resource officers as it seeks to prevent violence by supporting mental health resources. This is the multi-pronged approach to school safety Ohio needs.”

03.22.18 - Toledo Lawmakers Respond To State's Impaired Lake Erie Waters Designation

 

Today State Reps. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) and Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) introduced a resolution urging the Director of the United States Environmental Protection Agency to add Lake Erie’s Western Basin to the list of impaired waters.  The move follows a State of the State address that left the two Toledo-area representatives disappointed with the lack of urgency surrounding the continued water quality crisis in Northwest Ohio.

“To seriously address harmful algal blooms in our state requires a firm commitment to reform and to exploring all avenues for action,” said Rep. Fedor. “I was hopeful that Ohio and federal governments would treat the ongoing crisis with more resolve and that last week’s State of the State address would outline some real policy initiatives. It is past time to put Lake Erie and the lives we have built here first.”

This resolution recognizes that Lake Erie’s Western Basin is facing a water quality crisis, plagued by pollution, algal blooms, and fish kills. Both Rep. Fedor and Rep. Sheehy were serving Toledo in the Ohio House of Representatives in 2014 when an algal bloom left 500,000 Toledoans without safe drinking water. Lake Erie’s Western Basin still requires massive doses of chlorine to be considered safefor consumption, continually impacting much of the region.

“The algae problem is far too critical to continue the weak actions taken by the current state and federal administrations,” said Rep. Sheehy. “If swift and decisive action is not taken now, Ohioans along the coast will continue to lose income, wildlife, and many more resources from Lake Erie.”

Unlike Ohio, Michigan did include the open waters in its jurisdiction on its list of impaired waters that it submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, which approved that list. The United States EPA already has declared Michigan’sportion of Lake Erie impaired and Rep. Fedor and Rep. Sheehy believe that designation should be given to the portions of Lake Erie in Ohio’s jurisdiction as well. This resolution calls for the U.S. EPA to make that designation now, in accordance with the U.S. Clean Water Act.

Mike Ferner, coordinator of Advocates for a Clean Lake Erie, said, “Representatives Fedor and Sheehy’s resolution is the right thing at the right time.  This spring and early summer Lake Erie will experience another flood of animal waste and other sources of excess nutrients, potentially turning it into a toxic soup in August.  An impaired designation will require an inventory of all pollution sources and a timetable to hold polluters accountable.  The sooner the better.”   

 
 

03.22.18 - Fedor, Sheehy Respond To State's Impaired Lake Erie Waters Designation

 

On the heels of their House resolution calling for the Lake Erie’s open waters to be declared “impaired,” state Reps. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) and Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today issued the following statements in response to the Kasich Administration’s about-face on issuing the declaration – which could mean tighter pollution standards and more resources to protect the Great Lake:

“Today, the governor listened to the needs, fears, and wishes of this legislative body and the people of our great state on the issue of Lake Erie. I want to thank him for finally standing up and calling for Lake Erie to be declared impaired. I look forward to working closely with his office, the people of Toledo, the communities all along Lake Erie, and all Ohioans on cleaning up Lake Erie, returning it to its former glory, and ensuring that it is safe and healthy for years to come.” —state Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo)

“This decision certainly comes as welcome news following years of economic damage in Northwest Ohio. We are thankful for the Governor’s political courage, and that he is joining us in defense of Ohio’s single greatest natural resource against the big-money special interest groups fighting against a solution.” —state Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon)
