Ohio governor weighing controversial Great Lakes bill
By WBFO News
Albany, NY – Ohio's governor is expected to say Friday whether he will sign or veto a bill that has drawn the threat of a lawsuit from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The measure would allow Ohio factories to pull more water out of Lake Erie. During a visit to Western New York Thursday, Cuomo said New York could resort to legal action, if necessary, to halt the Ohio legislation.
However, Cuomo said they would prefer to resolve the matter through "conversations" if possible. Beyond Cuomo, Michigan's governor has also expressed reservations about the bill.
