Rep. Latta and Rep. Brown to address energy issues at Hancock-Wood Electric Co-op

NORTH BALTIMORE, OHIOOn Wednesday, March 9, U.S. Congressman Bob Latta of Ohio’s 5th District and State Representative Tim Brown will speak at Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative’s annual Action Committee for Rural Electrification® (ACRE®) Legislative Meeting to discuss regulatory issues impacting electric co-ops’ ability to deliver affordable energy. The free event, which runs from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., and includes a full breakfast and door prizes, is open to members of Hancock-Wood and elected officials.

Hancock-Wood President and CEO George Walton said, “Our Ohio co-ops distribute energy from one of the most reliable and cleanest coal-fired generation stations in the world, while keeping rates affordable for our members. For co-ops to maintain reliable service and reasonable costs, we need our members to help us fight against needless regulations at a time when our nation’s economy is just getting back on its feet. Unnecessary regulations will take us a step backward and cost us in jobs, economic development and affordable energy.”

Latta serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has wide jurisdiction on legislative matters – including energy policy. He is Vice-Chairman of the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology and a member of the Subcommittees on Energy and Power and Environment and the Economy. Rep. Latta also serves as a Deputy Whip and Co-Chair of the Congressional Propane Caucus. Throughout his tenure, Congressman Latta has advocated for the interests of the people of northwest Ohio, while promoting policies that further economic prosperity and job creation.

Brown chairs the Government Accountability and Oversight Committee and serves on the Financial Institutions, Housing and Urban Development Committee, and the Health and Aging Committee. House Bill 190, sponsored by State Representatives Tim Brown and Tony Burkley, received testimony in the House Public Utilities Committee. HB 190 seeks to attract investment to the State of Ohio by making changes to Ohio tax policy and wind farm development. Brown says, “House Bill 190 is fundamentally about economic development, attracting investment to our state, job-creation and local control.”

ACRE is the political committee of the nation’s electric cooperatives. Founded in 1966 by the nearly 1,000 cooperatives of the NRECA, it supports candidates for state and federal office – those in office now and those running for office – who will speak for and protect the interests of electric cooperatives and their member-owners.

Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative, established April 20, 1938, serves portions of Hancock, Wood, Allen, Erie, Hardin, Henry, Putnam, Sandusky, Seneca and Wyandot counties. Throughout the cooperative’s history, HWEC has supported local causes through charitable contributions, volunteerism and other activities to make a positive impact on quality of life within the communities it serves.
