FOLM is shaping policy and building relationships with policy makers to ensure Lake Monroe is getting the attention it deserves from the state and local community.

 
 

What we’ve accomplished:

 

1.

In 2017, a member worked with the press, state, and local government to ensure HB 1089 was not heard in the Senate.

 

2.

Members met with various representatives from local government, academic, and funding organizations.

 

3.

Members increased awareness through newspaper articles in The Herald-Times and the Indiana Daily Student.
