(Toledo News Now) - Ohio Governor John Kasich signed into law Senate Bill 1, the Clean Lake Erie Act, at Maumee Bay State Park on Thursday.
The bill puts measures in place to prevent pollution in Lake Erie, which has contributed to the algae problem.
"I'm not telling you all the problems are fixed or there's not going to be another algae crisis. It's just what we're working on," said Gov. Kasich. "But there is a deep commitment to this lake."
"This is a step forward," said Paul Pacholski, president of the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association. "Nobody can respond to a change in law just like snapping your fingers.”
