ST. MARYS — An Ohio Congressman says the Obama administration is hindering domestic energy development with unnecessary regulations and restrictions.
“We have to have energy,” 5th District U.S. Rep. Bob Latta, a Republican, told The Evening Leader during a visit to its office Monday. “Ohio gets 85 percent of its energy from coal. They put more regulations on it ... If the EPA and President Obama keep putting higher standards on that, it’s going to get to the point to where these companies won’t be able to keep meeting them.”
