      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.
