Excerpts from a Daily Standard article by William Kincaid:
– State Rep Jim Buchy, R-Greenville, and Sen. Keith Faber, R-Celina, both say that science should continue to guide state decisions on reviving Grand Lake. While separately discussing next year's General Assembly, both politicians briefly spoke about the lake.
– Asked if they believe alum should be applied for a third time, Buchy said he supports whatever professional water quality folks say, while Faber said it's too early to say.
– Buchy said he couldn't provide specifics about such revenue, but said he is in negotiations with people to "put in place a long-term funding mechanism to have ongoing improvements."
– Faber said he continues to believe that science should dictate what the state's doing; however, the problem of the lake took hundreds of years to happen, not a few.
– "We're going to continue to make Grand Lake St. Marys a priority," Faber said.
