Governor Kasich Suggests Permitting Laws May Need Updated

From The Vindicator Shale Sheet:
Gov. John Kasich said the state may need to change permitting laws to prevent people who illegally dump oilfield waste into storm sewers from continuing their Ohio operations. 
The governor offered the response when asked whether the individuals involved at 2761 Salt Springs Road in Youngstown should serve jail time if found guilty of the crime. 
“We don’t want people dumping fracking fluid in a storm water [drain],” Kasich said at the Ohio Newspapers Association’s annual conference Wednesday evening. “When they do, we’re going to go after them. We have tough regulations, good regulations, probably the best in the country, so that if we do have mistakes ... the public will know that we’ve been on top of it.”
