Here is a brief summary of several important changes made by the House to HB 490, the Administration's MBR for ODAg, ODNR and OEPA. The OEC remains an Interested Party on Sub. HB 490, strongly supporting some provisions while strongly opposing others. We thank Chairman Hall and his Committee for the positive changes and urge the House to accept them. The OEC respectfully urges the House to reject the regressive provisions and, instead, revert to the As Introduced version of the bill for those respective provisions and also adopt the several good amendments offered by minority members. Thank you for your consideration.
