I recently contacted the OEC for information about hydraulic fracturing in the state of Ohio. They were quick to respond and I was able to speak at length with Trent Dougherty, their legal affairs director. He was very knowledgeable and helpful and gave me a great deal of background on both the legal framework for fracking, and the current situation in the state of Ohio. I also spoke to Jack Shaner, director of legislative affairs, who filled me in on the latest news from the Ohio legislature. I found the information that I received to be very helpful. The OEC does its homework and has earned a well-deserved reputation as a leader in helping to protect Ohio's environment. I believe that the OEC is an essential environmental resource for all Ohioans.
