WASHINGTON — Several provisions of the 2018 Farm Bill could help improve Lake Erie water quality, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio) said.

Mr. Brown told reporters Wednesday that the bill, sent up by the Senate Agriculture Committee, brings a greater focus to improved soil health and water quality. It also brings more support to small and medium-sized dairy producers, and protects the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, for needy families.

He is the first Ohioan to serve on that committee in more than 40 years. Joining him on the call was Cathann Kress, dean of Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
