TOLEDO, Ohio — A group of Ohio lawmakers is planning to meet just outside Toledo next week to talk about the algae problems on Lake Erie.
The legislators say the state of emergency brought on over the weekend by toxins in Toledo’s water supply shows there should be greater urgency in fighting the algae.
Both Republicans and Democrats who make up the Lake Erie Legislative Caucus are planning to attend a meeting about the algae on Aug. 15 at Maumee Bay State Park. That’s just outside Toledo.
State Sen. Randy Gardner and Rep. Chris Redfern are co-chairs of the Lake Erie caucus.
