Report: Oil And Gas Companies Spent Millions On Ohio Lobbying
A report from a national government watchdog group says oil and gas producers have spent nearly $3 million on lobbying and campaign contributions in Ohio over the last decade.
Governor John Kasich benefited the most with more than $213,000 in contributions, followed by former Gov. Ted Strickland at $87,450, and Secretary of State Jon Husted with $84,750.
The report comes from Common Cause, a left-leaning national nonprofit focusing on money and ethics in government.
A Kasich spokesman says gas drilling is expected to create 200,000 jobs over the next four years and the governor has warned gas companies to play by Ohio’s environmental rules.
