Del. Maggie McIntosh clarifies Green Fund questions

"Worcester County Commissioners were incorrectly advised that the Chesapeake Bay Green Fund bill ignores the coastal bays due to its focus on the Chesapeake Bay, and also places rural counties at a disadvantage....

"More than 50 percent of Green Fund dollars will go back to local governments. In Worcester County these dollars can be used to assist the county and its cities -- including Snow Hill, Pocomoke City, Berlin and Ocean City -- with Smart Growth planning, incentives and grants for housing, and other pollution-reducing strategies, which will benefit communities as a whole and the coastal bays adjacent to Ocean City."

So says Del. Maggie McIntosh in her response to the Worcester County Commissioners vote to oppose the Chesapeake Bay Green Fund(The Daily Times)
