Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement today after the Ohio Environmental Agency issued an air permit-to-install to the proposed PTTGCA Petrochemical Complex in Belmont County:

I was very pleased to learn the Ohio EPA issued an air permit today for the proposed ethane cracker plant in Belmont County. The OEPA did their due diligence, as they should, to ensure that the project would not have an adverse environmental impact. This news represents another step forward for the PTTGCA Petrochemical Complex.  It is yet another sign of the positive progress being made towards what would be the largest construction project in Ohio history - and a major job creator for our region.
