OFBF statement in response to the Energy Mandates Study Committee Report

For Immediate Release

Sept. 30, 2015

COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) – Editors: The following statement can be attributed to John C. (Jack) Fisher, executive vice president, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.

“Ohio Farm Bureau strongly disagrees with the Energy Mandates Study Committee Report, which calls for an indefinite freeze on Ohio’s advanced energy initiative. Farm Bureau policy calls for the state to have a diversified energy portfolio that provides consumers with a variety of energy sources. We also believe consumers should have access to energy efficiency programs. This report fails to achieve these goals. Ohio Farm Bureau remains open to discussing alternative methods to improving Ohio’s advanced energy policies.”
