12.06.16 - Ramos: Ohio Legislature Threatens Job Growth With Energy Standard Redo

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) 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. 

“It is no secret that global temperatures have risen and CO2 is at a higher level than has ever existed in the history of humanity,” said Ramos. “Climate change is not just an issue for the next generation, this is an issue for our own.” 

 
 

12.01.16 - Dems Join National Popular Vote Interstate Compact To Restore Citizen's Democracy

 

State Reps. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) and David Leland (D-Columbus) today announced they plan to introduce new legislation aimed at restoring true democracy in America by ensuring the presidential candidate that receives the greatest total of votes is the candidate that ends up in the White House. This legislation proposes that Ohio join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, a group of states that pledge their entire Electoral College delegation to the winner of the national popular vote during the general election.

“This is a change that is long overdue. Two-thirds of the presidents elected in my adult life will have been chosen by the Electoral College in their first term without a corresponding majority of the electorate,” said Ramos. “Our current framework does not respect the direct will of the people. This is patently undemocratic and undermines confidence in the people that we are truly a democracy.”
