Thanks to Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters-COAC for inviting Bill Heck and Marnie Urso to your Sunday, June 2nd workshop. We really appreciate the opportunity to connect with you and share updates on Audubon Great Lakes.
I am reaching out to you with an opposition letter for the House Bill 6 – a bill that recently passed in the Ohio House and currently is debated in the Ohio Senate. This bill is moving fast and would dismantle Ohio’s successful renewable portfolio and energy efficiency standards. These standards have been essential to promoting renewable energy and reducing carbon emissions in Ohio, an important part of mitigating climate change. Please find attached the sign on letter opposing the HB6. Thank you to chapters who have signed already (Audubon Miami Valley, Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland, Canton Audubon Society, Greater Akron Audubon Society, and Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society).
Please Act – Oppose the House Bill 6 and save Ohio’s Renewable Energy Portfolio and Energy Efficiency Standards:
Sign on to the opposition letter by clicking on the link below – Sign on to the letter by Monday, June 17th by 5:00pm EST.
Thank you for taking a stand for Ohio’s clean energy!

Note: Birds tell us that we must take action to combat climate change. Audubon’s Birds and Climate Report found that more than half of all North American bird species, are endangered or threatened by climate change if global warming continues at its current pace. By 2080 Ohio will no longer be suitable for many of our favorite migratory species, and they will be forced north in desperate search of adequate habitat. Future generations may never know the fiery red of a Scarlet Tanager or the bubbly buzzes and trills of a Bobolink. We need your voice, contact your legislators now and tell them to oppose House Bill 6.
