Ohio Farm Bureau recently joined conservationists, water quality specialists, environmentalists, tourism officials and charter boat captains in discussing water quality issues with U.S. Sen. Rob Portman at Lake Erie. During the roundtable, Portman discussed his algal bloom bill that President Obama signed into law. The legislation reauthorizes millions of dollars to combat harmful algal blooms. Portman negotiated a Great Lakes section for the program. At the roundtable were Ohio Farm Bureau Board member Daryl Knipp, Nationwide Board of Trustees member Sparky Weilnau and Wade Smith, Lucas County Farm Bureau vice president.
