Ohio legislators move to ban use of LEED on public construction

November 27, 2013


Two Ohio state senators have introduced legislation that seeks to ban the use of LEED in public construction. Joe Uecker, R-Loveland, and Tim Schaffer, R-Lancaster, sponsors of the bill, complain that LEED does not follow American National Standards Institute (ANSI) consensus procedures and therefore should not be used as a rating system of record. However, unlike some other states that have moved to ban the use of LEED in public projects this year, which danced around specifically naming LEED, the Ohio resolution takes on LEED v4 directly.
