COLUMBUS—Chairman Bob Paduchik issued the following statement on Tim Ryan’s pushing radical Green New Deal policies:
“Tim Ryan long supported the closing of the Keystone XL pipeline, which eliminated thousands of jobs and unilaterally increased energy prices across the country. Now, Tim Ryan is singing Joe Biden’s praises for tapping our nation’s oil reserves for one day worth of production and waging war on America’s energy industry.
“Seemingly indifferent to soaring energy prices, Tim Ryan supports shutting down yet another domestic oil pipeline, Line 5.
“Tim Ryan’s nonsensical policies only serve to empower our adversaries, undermine American workers, and cost Ohioans more to heat their homes and fill up their gas tanks.”
