WATCH: Ensuring the vitality and safety of Ohio's waterways is a top priority for the Ohio Senate. This week's Senate Report takes a closer look at the significant progress happening at the Buckeye Lake dam renovation project and features interviews with Senator Jay Hottinger (R-Newark), Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director Jim Zehringer and local residents.

Back at the Statehouse, the Senate passed legislation this week in support of two important industries in Ohio, agriculture and tourism. Senate Bill 75, sponsored by Senator Bob Peterson (R-Sabina) and Senator Shannon Jones (R-Springboro), removes many of the liability and regulatory challenges that restrict the growth of small businesses in Ohio's vibrant agritourism industry. The bill now moves to the Ohio House for consideration. You can read more here in the press release and news coverage.
