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.” 

 
 

12.01.16 - Sheehy Joins State, Federal Lawmakers In Efforts To Improve Lake Erie Water Quality

 

State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today hailed recent calls to action at both the state and federal level for more comprehensive efforts to improve the health of Lake Erie, saying cooperation and unity were key to ensuring the region’s greatest natural resource is adequately protected and preserved for future generations.

On Tuesday, U.S. Reps. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) and Debbie Dingell (D-MI) made a joint plea for the U.S. EPA to step in and designate the open water of Lake Erie’s western basin as impaired under the federal Clean Water Act. The same day, Sheehy offered sponsor testimony on House Resolution (HR) 214, legislation encouraging support for the 2016 agreement between Ontario, Michigan, and Ohio that established a goal of a 40 percent phosphorus reduction in the lake by 2025.  

 
 

11.10.16 - Sheehy Applauds Snyder's Impaired Lake Erie Designation, Urges Kasich To Consider Same

 

 State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Orgeon) applauded Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s declaration today of the western Lake Erie watershed as impaired, a designation that could trigger a federal EPA partnership to intensify efforts that limit dangerous runoff and lake contamination. Though Michigan was required to make the declaration under federal law, Sheehy says Snyder’s willingness and promptness shows leadership that can be emulated in the Buckey State.

“I applaud Governor Snyder’s leadership and his vision for a future that includes a safe and clean Lake Erie,” said Sheehy. “The vitality of our state’s most precious natural resource is inextricably linked to strong and stable economic growth and safer, healthier families. I urge Governor Kasich to take note of Snyder’s decision and consider doing the same.”

“I am thrilled to see one of our own communities recognized for all the things that it has to offer, such as beautiful landscapes, friendly neighbors and sustainable job opportunities,” said Sheehy. “I have always known that Maumee is a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. This latest honor will help shine a spotlight on Maumee and hopefully attract more tourists and future residents.”
