Ohio legislators ask Trump to kill E-Check. Reported By Doug Livingston. Mostly conservative members of the Ohio House have resolutely asked President Donald Trump and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to eliminate the 20-year-old E-Check program and other “burdensome” air quality initiatives they say choke the economy and peeve motorists. House Resolution 85 passed Wednesday and asks Trump to “explore alternatives to the E-Check Program.” The program launched in 1996, covering seven Ohio counties around Akron and Cleveland — Summit, Portage, Medina, Cuyahoga, Lake, Lorain and Geauga.
