Brief -- Youngstown Ban

Voters in Youngstown, OH, for the fifth time since 2013 voted against a referendum to amend the city's charter in a way that would ban oil and gas development, injection wells and certain industry-related activities. Voters rejected the measure 51-49%, 6,028 against and 5,683 in favor. Tuesday's vote was the narrowest to date (see Shale DailyNov. 6, 2013). Earlier this year, the Mahoning County Board of Elections had decided not to certify the issue for a vote, citing state court precedent, but the state Supreme Court later ordered it back on the ballot (see Shale DailySept. 21). Organizers behind the proposal have repeatedly said they would continue to put the issue before voters until it's passed.
