Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio:
SECTION 1. That section 5.2239 of the Revised Code be enacted
to read as follows:
Sec. 5.2239. The last week of May is designated as "Ohio
Turfgrass Week," in order to increase awareness of the importance
of turfgrass to this state's economy and environment. The General
Assembly finds that the turfgrass industry in this state employs
thousands of people and generates billions of dollars in revenue
each year. The General Assembly also finds that turfgrass acts as
an environmental filter absorbing pollutants such as carbon
dioxide and sulfur dioxide and prevents soil erosion.
As used in this section, "turfgrass" means a natural sod that
has multiple uses.
