North American Windpower cites AEE's Fakoury on Ohio Bill

by

North American Windpower quotes AEE's Ray Fakhoury on the passage of H.B. 114. From the article: 

National business group Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) claims H.B.114 is objectively worse than H.B.554, the bill vetoed by Kasich last year. According to AEE, H.B.114 would deprive the state of $10 billion in advanced energy market opportunities created by reinstatement of the state’s standards on Jan. 1.

“The Ohio House’s attempt to slam a revolving door on the advanced energy industry by passing a job-killer like H.B.114 is discouraging. Businesses are depending on a clear signal from the legislature, and unfortunately, all they keep hearing is that Ohio is closed for business,” says Ray Fakhoury, state policy associate at AEE, in a release. “Now it’s up to the Senate to do take a stand and do what’s right for Ohio’s consumers by rejecting H.B.114.”
