Ohio Energy Bill SB 315 Believed To Be Threat To Public Health

Frackfree Mahoning testifies at House hearing on Ohio SB 315 - a gas and oil development proposal which doesn't even adhere to standards of American Petroleum Institute:

One of the many possible threats to public health embodied in the bill is that doctors are prohibited from sharing information of the toxicity of water, air and land in communities, neighborhoods and backyards of their patients - thus keeping their patients in the dark and possibly dying from exposure to these contaminants. Frackfree Mahoning is one of many groups calling for an Immediate Halt to the Ohio House vote on the bill (scheduled for May 23 & 24, 2012) PRESS RELEASE HERE > http://frackfreemahoning.blogspot.com/2012/05/public-health-threat-opponents-call-for.html
