ASCE Ohio Council sends letters of support for GLRI and Infrastructure

 At its spring meeting, the ASCE Ohio Council of Local Sections discussed and overwhelming supported sending letters to Ohio Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown as well as Representative Marcy Kaptur stating that ASCE supports their efforts and recent statements to fully fund the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.  The GLRI was proposed to be cut from the EPA's budget as part of President Trump's budget proposal.  The GRLI was funded for $300/year for 5 years as part of the recently passed WIIN Act of 2016.  Both Senators and the Congresswoman have cited the need for this program to improve water quality for Lake Erie in the wake of the City of Toledo water issues in 2014, as well as keeping the Great Lakes free of invasive species such as the Asian Carp as hundreds of thousands of jobs rely on the Great Lakes and pour billions of dollars in the economy.

ASCE Ohio Council Supports “Restore Ohio” Bill

ASCE’s Ohio Council sent a letter of support to State Representative John Rogers (D- Mentor-on-the-Lake) for his sponsorship of HB 492 also known as “Restore Ohio”. This bill will use $1 billion of the State’s rainy-day fund to accelerate and increase Ohio’s ability to maintain, restore, and expand infrastructure throughout the state. It is expected that this investment will lead to improved industrial competitiveness, reduce costs for drivers and enhance services for all Ohio residents that are served by water, sewer, drainage, power, and other utility systems.  The letter was co-signed by President of the Ohio Council, Keith Aschemeier, P.E., and Federal Advocacy Captain, Jim Pajk, P.E. Additionally, ASCE Member Brooks Vogel, P.E. participated in a press conference to help frame the importance of infrastructure investment in the context of grades given in both the National and Ohio Report Cards.
