COLUMBUS — “The new bill would freeze Ohio’s efficiency and renewable standards for two years. Republican Reps. Mike Duffey of Worthington and Mark Romanchuk of Mansfield wanted to bring that down to a one-year freeze.

Duffey says he doesn’t like the bill because it makes a lot of changes without taking what he feels are the right steps to benefit consumers. But his attempts to amend the bill were struck down. While the committee eventually approved the bill, Duffey believes the final vote doesn’t tell the whole story.”
