COLUMBUS - State Senator Steve Huffman (R-Tipp City) announced today the State Senate has approved a bill to provide an additional $750,000 for weed harvesting operations at Indian Lake. Huffman worked with Senate President Matt Huffman to get the funding provision added to House Bill 377.

The Huffmans previously worked together to secure $500,000 for the weed harvesting operation by attaching that funding as an amendment to House Bill 175 in April. President Huffman called it a serious commitment has been made to making Ohio’s water clearer, safer and cleaner.

"Today's bill is a another significant investment in cleaning up our waterways so that Ohio families can enjoy our beautiful natural resources," said Senator Huffman. "We will make whatever commitment is necessary to ensure our water is clear and clean for generations to come."

The funds to harvest the weeds at Indian Lake will come from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and local partners.
