Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today issued the following statement on changes that affect water quality in House Bill 64, the state’s two-year operating budget bill:

“I’m concerned that language in the budget that was approved will circumvent recently-passed Senate Bill 1 and the progress we made for healthier, safer and more reliable water sources in our state. Unfortunately, this budget contains provisions that water down our progress on water quality. We must remain vigilant that the progress made is not eroded and that our drinking water is safe for millions of Ohioans.”
