Ohioans have been drilling for oil and gas since the 1800’s. But some people are saying ‘not in my backyard’ – literally.
Ohio is scattered with hundreds of thousands of new and old oil rigs. Now legislation is winding its way through Ohio’s Senate that would tighten restrictions on oil and gas drilling. Things like how far a rig can be from a home. But some groups think it won’t be enough. They’re worried about the environment and their safety. Join host Dan Moulthrop Wednesday morning at 9, as we drill deeper into this issue.
