From Food & Water Watch, a national eco-group:
Columbus, Ohio — “Governor Kasich’s proposed budget would have allowed the oil and gas industry to dispose of more radioactive waste from hydraulic fracturing operations in solid waste landfills. The fact that these so-called regulations were stripped from the budget is a victory for Ohioans and their essential resources, particularly because none of Ohio’s landfills are equipped to handle low-level radioactive waste.
“State policymakers are expected to revisit this proposal again this fall, and we hope that by then they will have reevaluated their recommendation to allow the industry to recklessly dispose of radioactive waste in landfills. State leaders should be protecting Ohio residents; not carving a path to let the oil and gas industry continue its mission to exploit every resource the state has to offer.”
