Ohio is a resource-rich state. We have coal, natural gas and oil production, and biofuels. We also have two nuclear power plants and a facility positioned to be the nation's uranium enrichment plant for nuclear fuel. Green technology and alternative energy are also expanding in Ohio, including wind power, solar and biofuels.
Rather than levy a job-killing tax on the kind of energy Ohio depends on, which is being proposed in Washington, we should encourage the use of all our natural resources, renewable energy, nuclear power, technology, and conservation in a way that breaks our dependence on foreign oil and leads to a cleaner environment.
