Gov. Kasich to ink Lake Erie drilling ban

Gov. Kasich will sign an order to reinforce a federal ban on drilling at Lake Erie.

Gov. John Kasich plans to officially back the federal ban on Lake Erie drilling on Wednesday.

According to the Associated Press, it's a move traditionally made by governors, but not one that was made by former Gov. Ted Strickland.

His signature means a state directive will reinforce the existing federal ban.

Gov. Kasich will sign the executive order today during the Fish Ohio Day in Port Clinton.
