From Dan Alfaro of Energy in Depth-Ohio, a pro-drilling industry group:
"As the state (Ohio) emerges as a leader in domestic energy production with the continued development of the Utica shale, it is also setting the standard in its regulatory system for developing states across the U.S.
"The passage of this bill gives the state the most robust, transparent and comprehensive oil and gas regulations in the country.
"This is something Ohioans across the board should be proud of."
