Ohio joined other Midwestern states and Canada in committing to fight toxic algae blooms in the Great Lakes and pledged to reduce phosphorus entering Lake Erie by 40% by 2025. Ohio is not on track to meet this commitment. Voluntary programs for pollution reduction, like H2Ohio, have not worked. Regulatory action is needed. Tell Governor DeWine to uphold the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement and reduce phosphorus pollution entering Lake Erie with strong regulations.
A federal investment of $25 billion over 10 years would jump-start the electrification of nearly half the nation’s school bus fleet, and clean up the air that 25 million schoolchildren breathe each day. In order to reach the communities where electric school buses are most needed, the electrification of school buses must prioritize low-income communities of color who bear the highest burden of pollution and poor air quality.
