Ted Strickland: Safeguard clean air and water for future generations

Q: Do you support the Environmental Protection Agency's efforts to enforce strong clean air and clean water standards?

Ted Strickland: I support efforts to enforce clean air and water standards because I believe climate change is a real and pressing problem, and that we must take action to address this challenge. We need to position Ohio to take advantage of all the benefits a clean energy economy can bring: more jobs, cheaper electricity, and better public health. Additionally, since Ohio's natural resources are such an important part of what makes our state a great place to live, work and start a family, and since these resources closely linked to our economic growth, I believe we have a responsibility to safeguard these resources for future generations.
