Democrats Accuse Administration Of Hiding Jobs Data During Green Energy Debate

A pair of House Democrats on Friday accused the Kasich administration of suppressing a promising report on Ohio's "green energy" jobs while the GOP-controlled legislature was working to roll back renewable energy standards.

The report commissioned by the Development Services Agency found that Ohio's alternative energy economy employed a total of 31,222 full-time and part-time workers employed at 845 establishments.
