Senate Confirms Butler As Ohio EPA Chief

The Ohio Senate has confirmed Governor John Kasich's choice to lead the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. Craig Butler has been serving as the agency's director since early January. He was confirmed over the objections of Democrats, who are concerned over recent revelations that the Kasich administration paid for but never released results of a 435 thousand dollar survey tallying clean-energy jobs while Butler was Kasich's senior policy adviser on environmental, energy, public utility and agricultural issues. Butler replaces Scott Nally, who resigned.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
