Columbus - 
State Senator Gayle Manning (R - North Ridgeville) provided testimony today on Senate Bill 302, her effort to reform the Ohio Attorney General's regulations involving its Environmental Background Investigation Unit (EBIU). The plan aims to streamline current practices while creating a clearer process of background checks on employees from the solid and hazardous waste disposal industry. Both Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and state Environmental Protection Agency Director Scott Nally have worked with Manning in crafting a balanced proposal that offers common sense reform while maintaining vital environmental regulations. Ohio is home to roughly 175 facilities that must comply with current EBIU regulations. Additionally, a total of approximately 130 hazardous or solid waste facilities are in operation throughout the state. "In today's economic climate, we must be certain that our investigatory processes get the job done while also treating job creators fairly," Manning said. "Thanks to a collaborative effort with the Attorney General's Office and the Ohio EPA, I am confident that this bill will help to achieve that goal." The idea for the legislation came after discussions with Ross Environmental Services, Inc., of Elyria. The local company boasts more than six decades in the field of hazardous and industrial waste management. Senate Bill 302 is currently being heard before the Senate Agriculture, Environment, & Natural Resources Committee.
Senator Gayle Manning represents the 13th Ohio Senate District, which encompasses Lorain and Huron counties and eastern portions of Seneca County. Her office can be reached by phone at (614) 644-7613 or by e-mailing
