COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A GOP-backed bill would change the name of an Ohio state park to honor former President Donald Trump. The bill primarily sponsored by freshman Rep. Mike Loychik to rename Mosquito State Park to Donald J. Trump State Park is the latest attempt by Ohio Republicans to honor the former president.

The state park in question is located in Cortland, with more than 7,000 acres, and one of the largest lakes in the state. Loychik had initially announced his plans for the bill in mid-March, resulting in a wave of criticism from Democratic colleagues, who believe there are more pressing issues for the House to focus on.
