Opening Statement of Environment and the Economy Subcommittee Chairman John Shimkus

Today, the subcommittee will be taking a look at the harmful algal blooms in drinking water, including the source water used for drinking. I thank Representative Latta for his efforts on this issue and for bringing it to the subcommittee’s attention.
