CBF Statement on EPA Administrator Jackson
Stepping Down

(ANNAPOLIS, MD)���Chesapeake Bay Foundation President William C. Baker issued this statement on the announcement that EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson will be stepping down.

"Lisa Jackson courageously moved to end pollution in the Chesapeake Bay, a true national treasure. She worked to develop a Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint, which is in place, legally binding, and demonstrating what can happen when government, business, and individuals cooperate. If implemented fully through 2025, the Blueprint will mark an end to the terrible impact on human health of polluted water and the loss of fish, oysters, and crabs to the Bay's dead zone.

"All who love the Bay owe Ms. Jackson an enormous debt of gratitude."
