In a state with a lot of industry, we know the importance of balancing jobs and economic growth with quality of life. One of the programs that seeks this balance is the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan.
   
  Public transit in Ohio is in trouble. In 2000, the year I left the Ohio House, public transit received $44 million in state support. Now it gets about $7 million a year — practically a rounding error in the state budget.
 
  Anyone reading this doesn’t need to be told the oil and gas industry in the United States, through innovation and investment, has made America the biggest oil and natural gas producer in the world—cutting our dependence on foreign oil by 20 percent.
   
  The reality is that all of our nearly one million natural gas customers across the province will directly benefit from the development of these projects.

  America’s abundance of natural gas holds the key to meeting America’s energy needs and growing our economy while improving our environment.
   
  A movement is only as effective as the people behind it. For renewable natural gas (RNG), a dynamic team has coalesced to bring this fuel to market and strengthen its profile and uptake.
 
  For light- and heavy-duty truck operators evaluating a switch to natural gas from diesel, the recent oil-price collapse represents the most significant “bump in the road” in several years.
   
  Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has attracted a lot of attention around the nation as a cleaner, more affordable transportation energy source. LNG is used for a variety of fueling purposes including large trucks, marine and rail vessels.
 
  Texas has 30 percent of the estimated natural gas in the U.S., which is the world’s largest reserve. It is estimated by the Energy Information Administration that America has enough natural gas to supply current and future demand for up to 150 years.
   
  Maintaining the status of one of the greenest cities in the Midwest, it is proving local government can make a difference when it comes to resources, community health and environmental impacts.
