Ohio has seen lost jobs, fallen wages, a lack of
educational opportunities for young people, and
high poverty rates
  • With the Apollo Alliances ideas, Ohio will be
    able to
  • lead the way in supplying the entire nation
    with components for wind turbines and other
    renewable infrastructure while also reducing
    pollution, increasing jobs and reducing
    dependence on foreign oil the smartest states
    are endorsing and benefiting from this kind of
    big idea. Amy Hanauer (2005), the executive
    director of Policy Matters Ohio

Apollo Alliance seeks to build national support
and eventually pass legislation though Congress
