The “Clean Lake 2020 Plan” calling for an increase in funding for efforts to reduce harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie by millions of dollars has passed the Ohio General Assembly and is headed to Gov. John Kasich for his signature.
The plan, Senate Bill 299, was passed by the Ohio House of Representatives late last week after being approved by the Ohio Senate early in June.
In 2018, the legislation would provide funding of up to $36 million this year toward efforts to reduce harmful algal blooms, such as through agricultural best practices and other initiatives.
State Sen. Randy Gardner, R-Bowling Green, and State Rep. Steve Arndt, R-Port Clinton, initially proposed the plan in March.
“I was happy to vote in support of this legislation which is the product of many hours of hard work between myself, Senator Gardner, and stakeholders from the agriculture, environmental and manufacturing communities,” Arndt said in a news release.
