CBF Applauds Virginia Attorney General for Supporting Bay Cleanup Plan

(FORT MONROE, VA)—Chesapeake Bay Foundation President William C. Baker issued this statement following today's announcement that Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Virginia's plan to restore the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams:

"The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) roundly applauds Attorney General Herring for supporting federal-state Chesapeake Bay pollution limits and Virginia's Bay restoration plan, generally called the Bay Blueprint.

"Virginia has long been a full and active Bay restoration partner and was at the table to help craft the Blueprint, a cooperative, federal-state plan that has been called the Bay's best, and perhaps last, chance for restoration. The Commonwealth and her citizens clearly have much to gain from a healthy Chesapeake Bay, and much to lose should Bay restoration be thwarted.

"It is deeply gratifying that Virginia will stand with CBF, other regional states, and numerous localities in defending clean water, a restored Bay, and healthy rivers and streams."
