Gov. John Kasich chose a deck at the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland to sign a new bill aimed at protecting Lake Erie. Senate Bill 2 will expand the power of the Ohio EPA, but it’s also aimed at helping businesses. For Ohio Public Radio, WCPN’s Mark Urycki reports.
Two years ago, the governor signed S.B 1 to prevent the dumping of dredged river material into Lake Erie. Now Kasich has signed S.B. 2 to help find a market for that sediment.
“We want to take care of our environment. We don’t want to worship it but we want to be good stewards of it.”
