Ohio Legislature Finally Approves Great Lakes Compact

Once its Governor signs the bill, Ohio will become the sixth of the eight Great Lakes states to approve the Great Lakes Compact.

Still to approve and adopt the agreement: Pennsylvania and Michigan.

Then the agreement goes to the Congress for approval, a step that may run into opposition from arid states in the south and west.

I finally got one of those Google accounts that all the kids are talking about. I used to post anonymously, but now you can yell at me using my true name: Mr. Pelican Pants

Interesting that the former detractor in Ohio voted for the final bill. As I've said before, Michigan may be the last to do this thing, but we'll see.
