Ohio House lawmakers to hold hearing in western Ohio on Lake Erie water quality


TOLEDO, Ohio — A committee of state lawmakers will travel to western Ohio to talk about water quality issues facing Lake Erie and the rest of the state.

The Ohio House's agriculture committee will meet in Van Wert next Thursday.

High-ranking members in the Legislature and officials within Ohio Gov. John Kasich's administration say a top priority this year will be tackling the algae fouling the water in Lake Erie.

The House agriculture committee plans to hear from farmers and researchers at the upcoming hearing.

New House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger says he wants to work on water quality solutions without singling out anyone.
