Rep. Randy Gardner’s efforts to fight Lake Erie algae problems received a major boost Monday when Gov. John Kasich signed legislation that includes Gardner’s $3 million Healthy Lake Erie Fund.
“I’m pleased to have Governor Kasich’s support for the Healthy Lake Erie Fund, and to have bipartisan backing to begin to attack this environmental and economic challenge facing our region,” Gardner said.
There has been growing concern by travel and tourism-related businesses that the worsening algae problem in Lake Erie is impacting the region’s economy and forcing higher unemployment.
