Thank you Governor DeWine for supporting home rule and protecting Lake Erie.
Please tell your Ohio State Senator to let local areas determine their own laws, especially on plastics which can harm our lakes and rivers
This from the Sierra Club of Ohio:
EVERYONE make calls to Governor DeWine’s office applauding his position against the container law preemption bills and for local government freedom to develop solutions to plastic pollution. (Pats on the back are always nice, and hopefully it will encourage him to hold strong on his position and veto any bills that may make it to his desk) (614) 644-4357
