Ohio's Anti-Compact Forces Still Delaying Adoption There

Ohio's stubborn reactionaries are still holding up the approval of the Great Lakes Compact.

These are the same Ohio legislators with whom Wisconsin's leading Compact opponent, State Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin), had been working with strategically as Wisconsin's legislature slowly worked its way to approving the Compact earlier this month.

If Lazich's allies succeed in blocking the Compact in Ohio, thus withholding the agreement's required eight-Great Lakes state approvals, and eventual Congressional ratification, diversions of water to Lazich's constituents in New Berlin and Waukesha could be in peril.

Go figure.
