2013 Pennsylvania General Assembly Update

Unlike Maryland and Virginia, which have between two- and three-month annual legislative sessions, Pennsylvania's General Assembly holds two-year sessions. During the 2013-2014 session an emphasis of our policy work will be to ensure conservation funding, including funding for Growing Greener, remains intact. Additionally, we will advocate for the creation of local stormwater authorities and additional funding for stormwater management. And, we will advocate for a fertilizer bill, such as those passed in 2011 in Maryland and Virginia.

All three of these priorities are critical to Pennsylvania's Clean Water Blueprint for the Chesapeake Bay.
