Lawmaker Gathering Feedback On Possible Bond Issue For Algae Bloom-Related Sewer Fixes

Rep. Hall is exploring an algae-related infrastructure bond issue

Now that legislation targeting agricultural runoff is on its way to the governor's desk, the House's anti-algae strategist is mulling the potential for a ballot issue to generate funds to help stem the flow of sewage into Ohio's waterways.

Rep. Dave Hall (R-Millersburg) said this week he's considering the idea of a voter-approved bond issue to finance upgrades for public wastewater systems, many of which are struggling to comply with federal requirements to reduce combined sewer overflows.
