Ryan was in Columbus to help fight against Ohio SB 5 and Ohio HB 194. After speaking with Ryan, I'm inspired, surprised and confused.
I'm inspired ordinary people such as myself can engage with politicians who spend much of their time in D.C. ButI'm surprised he said fracking (if done right) is a way to address Global Warming.

Ohio congressman Tim Ryan joined two former directors of the Ohio Turnpike and Teamsters Local 436 in Tuesday to speak out against the privatization of the turnpike.

He also thinks this is not a good time to get the amount of money its worth. This is not a seller's market this is a buyer's market so why would sell one of the great assets of Ohio at the worst possible time when you're going to get the worst value says Ryan.
