POLICY WORK

Let us help remove the barriers to your success

We are the only organization in Ohio's clean transportation industry that works at the local, state and federal levels to remove policy obstacles for our members and stakeholders.  We accomplish this through direct advocacy on legislation and executive agency policy, and by providing policymakers with insight and expertise to create policies that keep Ohio moving forward in the deployment of advanced fuels.

 

The depth and breadth of our resources are also unique.   Our Director of Policy, Jason Phillips, is a 15-year veteran of the Ohio General Assembly.  His experience, combined with our educational and collaborative approach, has strengthened our relationships at the Statehouse and added value for our members. Our successful approach to policy has also been adopted by other Clean Cities coalitions.

 

Our policy work is ongoing year-round. We also host an annual Statehouse Education & Outreach Day for our members, actively participate in the Energy Independence Summit which is presented by the Transportation Energy Partners in Washington, D.C.  on federal policy, present the Legislator of the Year Award at the Midwest Green Transportation Forum and Expo, and publish a monthly blog.

ABOUT LAST YEAR'S EVENT

Some Words from Participants

 

"As one who has worked hard in the state legislature to advance pro-alternative fuels legislation, I understand the many benefits of clean fuels for individuals, fleets and businesses in my district.  Because of this, I applaud Clean Fuels Ohio on their annual education day and encourage anyone in my district interested in discovering how clean fuels can benefit them to contact Clean Fuels Ohio to learn more."

 

- Senator Sean O'Brien (D-Bazetta)

 

"A grant, voucher or any business stimulus package doesn't materialize from hope or luck.  An act that places all business on an even playing field or allows the customer to decide the winner won't happy by chance.  The luck or chance occurred years earlier from several legislative meetings.  Each industry can help facilitate their future by educating elected officials.  Each person truly holds the power to change their future by speaking to their legislators."

 

Frank Matthews, President

Ohio Propane Gas Association
