What’s holding up the Great Lakes Water Compact?

Posted Wednesday, April 9, 2008

Almost a year and a half ago, we had a conversation on SOI wondering if Ohio might be the first state to sign on to the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact. Well, since then, four states have ratified it, as has the Ohio House. And it's in the Ohio Senate where the agreement has stalled, mostly due to the efforts of Chesterland Senator Tim Grendell. He says he wants to add some language to protect Ohioans' private property. The Senator and a few others will join us to help us understand exactly where we are and where we might be headed.
