Long Awaited Clean Lake 2020 Plan Introduced

Two bipartisan companion bills and resolutions were introduced this week to comprehensively address the health of Lake Erie.

The legislation package sponsored in the Senate by Senators Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) and Sean O’Brien (D-Cortland) and in the House by Reps. Steve Arndt (R-Port Clinton) and John Patterson (D-Jefferson) is aimed to provide millions of dollars to fight and reduce harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie.

The package would include $36 million in 2018 and $100 million more per year for ten years if voters approve a Clean Water Bond issue. 5/10/2018
