State Representative Tim Ginter (R-Salem) introduced two bills to the Ohio House of Representatives during last Tuesday’s session.
House Bill 8, joint sponsored with Representative Christina Hagan (R-Alliance), seeks to revise provisions in the oil and gas law governing unit operation and to specify that the discounted cash flow formula used to value certain producing oil and gas reserves for property tax purposes is the only method for valuing all oil and gas reserves.
The other bill, House Bill 18, seeks to prohibit landlords from restricting the display of blue star banners, gold star banners, and other service flags, and to prohibit landlords from restricting the display of the United States flag.
“I am happy to introduce House Bill 8, which will protect the property rights of those wishing to benefit from the abundant natural resources available to us in Columbiana County, and strengthen our economic development,” said Rep. Ginter. “In addition, I am proud to sponsor House Bill 18, which will serve to protect our rights as Americans to proudly display these flags at our homes.”
Rep. Ginter is currently serving his first term as state representative for the 5th Ohio House District, which encompasses all of Columbiana County.
