Senator Kris Jordan addresses the Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee on Wednesday morning.
Columbus - 
State Senator Kris Jordan (R- Powell) today offered sponsor testimony on Senate Bill 216, which would repeal Ohio's Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard (AEPS). In testifying before the Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee, Jordan touted the legislation's merits and the need to do away with aspects of the AEPS. The Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard was the result of Senate Bill 221 of the 127th General Assembly. Upon its enactment, the legislation mandated that 25% of Ohio's energy must come from advanced and renewable resources by 2025. "It is my strong conviction that the choice of energy supply should come from the demands of the free market, and not from policy makers and environmental lobbyists," Jordan said. "Competition is the fuel for efficiency and cost savings and I believe that Senate Bill 221 needs to be revisited to ensure competitive energy pricing for our constituents."
Jordan represents Ohio's 19th Senate District, which includes Delaware, Knox, Morrow, Richland, and part of Ashland counties. Prior to serving in the Senate, he served as a State Representative and as a Delaware County Commissioner. He is a proven advocate for spending restraint, lower taxes, and family values. He lives in Powell with his wife, Melissa.
