The Ohio House of Representatives passed a resolution that calls for an end of the E-Check program. House Resolution 56 moves for Congress to reform the Federal Clean Air Act and the EPA to find a more effective option for E-Check. The program requires residents of Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit counties to have their vehicles checked for emission standards every two years.
Less than two months after proposing a bill that would eliminate the E-Check program, on Thursday, the Ohio House of Representatives passed the bill that would get rid of the vehicle emissions testing.
The bill currently has 19 co-sponsors and will await consideration from the Ohio Senate.
