Issue 2: The Sierra Club Ohio Chapter supports Issue 2 to continue the success of the Clean Ohio Fund.  The Clean Ohio Fund has resulted in the clean up and revitalization of 173 abandoned and polluted industrial sites since 2001.  In addition, it has conserved 26,000 acres of natural areas and wildlife habitats, preserved 20,000 acres of Ohio family farms and created 216 miles of recreational trails. This issue has bipartisan support and multiple endorsements from newspapers and organizations from across the state.
