(UPDATED WITH AUDIO INTERVIEW) The Ohio House voted Wednesday to approve a bill that applies rules in the Great Lakes Compact to Ohio.

The vote was along party lines in the Republican-dominated House, and state Rep. Dennis Murray, D-Sandusky, was one of the leading opponents of the GOP measure. Here's his speech on the House floor:

DM can talk all he wants, the sdratsab have control of the vote.

The bill was introduced by an elected official that owns a business that could/would be affected, he bottles water.

And now, the republican state senators are aligning themselves with their cronies in corporate America and violating the Compact terms by grossly exceeding the amount of water that should be withdrawn.

Yeah, those big bad businessmen are going to steal our water. Mr. Murray and the rest of our righteous good guys will continue to run off the people who create real jobs. Pretty soon no one will be left but the trial lawyers. Problem will be no one will be left to sue!

EddieOs

Suing? Ya won't be worrying 'bout suing when it costs you $3.50 for a gallon of your water. The corporatists have done a fine job of screwing up our country.  More of it? No thanks. Run these crooks outta here.

Re: Yeah, those big bad businessmen are going to steal our water

Don't need to steal, the bill gives them a "Signed Blank Check".

Fracking takes a lot of water, and when they are done with that water, you sure as lleh can't drink it.

Better save that water for drinking.

Jobs are not the concern of these "Business" people, it's all about "profits".

It does not take more people, to pump more water, you just need a bigger pump.

LOL !!!

Funny how such a rich family that caused about two  entire city blocks to be curtained by thier huge building and marina is trying to 'protect' us citizens ! Murry has the white house in his scope, make no mistake about that fact.

This is likely a give away for the energy sector. Kimo is right. The fracking process does require huge quantities of water, and that chemically-laced water then was to go somewhere.

Bailey: This isn't about a single person. It affects all of us on the North Coast.

I would love for the energy sector to show us how they are going to safely extract the gas from the shale beds. Why does it all have to be such a secret? A little sunshine could solve the distrust.

Here is the REAL (ha) story on your claim of JOBS from drilling. This is even reported on the "high side" of the numbers.

Water will be the “oil” of tomorrow, who controls the water, will be rich and powerful.   Nestle had been taking water for years, for basically nothing, some residents in Michigan sued them, the streams are drying up and wildlife is dying.   In the past, the Southwest wanted to try to tap into the Great Lakes, to ease their water crisis.   Interesting “water conspiracy”  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIQ-HuCOfS4 if your into conspiracies.

Here are your "jobs" from gas drilling...  These # s are even made to be "friendly" to the opponents!

Always remember, you can tell when the MURRAT is lieing hence his mouth is moving!!!

Re: http://www.mansfieldnewsjournal....

Worth noting in the comments: People do complain about the hundreds of water trucks grinding through the towns bringing water from the Susquehanna River to the well heads.

 The next issue: what happens to that water?

 

Kimo

 

The people that dumped the coal tar in Sandusky Bay created jobs both then and now. The "then" people are dead, the "now" people will need to be paid.
