COLUMBUS—State Representative Christina M. Hagan (R-Alliance) today applauded the passage of House Concurrent Resolution 29 through the Ohio House of Representatives.  The initiative calls for the President of United States to stop the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recent regulations that will limit fuel diversity and increase energy costs.

The resolution is in response to new proposals by the EPA to utilize the greenhouse gas (GHG) as a new source of energy.  With coal generating 80 percent of Ohio’s power and providing a source of employment and stability for Ohio citizens, the new EPA initiatives are expected to jeopardize the economy of the state.

"We are an energy-rich nation and we should responsibly promote, not deny, access to our people's right to low energy costs and the vicarious job creation associated with the economic impact of such fossil fuels,” Rep. Hagan said.

The United States currently has enough coal for 250 years, making it the most abundant source of energy in the country.

H.C.R. 29 passed the House with bipartisan support and will now move to the Senate for consideration.
