Ohio House Republican Summit County Delegation Votes In Favor Of Resolution Urging Elimination Of E-Check
State Representatives Anthony DeVitis (R-Green), Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) and Marilyn Slaby (R-Copley) today applauded the Ohio House's passage of House Resolution 85, a measure that urges the president and the United States Congress to eliminate the Auto Emissions Check, often referred to as E-Check. "Only seven counties in Ohio are subject to this federal overreach of E-Check," said Roegner. "I am glad to stand with my colleagues in a bipartisan fashion and support House Resolution 85." E-check is currently in place in seven northeast Ohio counties: Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit. House Resolution 85 calls on Congress to amend the Federal Clean Air Act to encourage the administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to explore alternatives to the E-Check Program. The current program is often costly and burdensome to drivers of older cars and thus disproportionately affects families and individuals with lower incomes. "Due to an unfair burden to the residents in Northeast Ohio, my hope is that House Resolution 85 will urge the federal government to restructure the way in which emissions goals are reached," said DeVitis. "The requirements for driving a vehicle in the affected seven E-Check counties should not be different than in any other Ohio county." "I recognize our concerns regarding air quality, but I encourage more efficient methods to obtain clean air that do not single out Northeast Ohio residents and create overly-burdensome regulations," said Slaby. House Resolution 85 passed with bi-partisan support with a vote count of 71-24. House Resolution 85 will be sent to the Ohio Congressional delegation, the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Director of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, the Executive Office of the President of the United States, and the news media of Ohio.State Representatives Anthony DeVitis (R-Green), Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) and Marilyn Slaby (R-Copley) today applauded the Ohio House's passage of House Resolution 85, a measure that urges the president and the United States Congress to eliminate the Auto Emissions Check, often referred to as E-Check.
