  • Federal Lobbyist

    Status: Current
    Date Posted: November 23, 2021
    The 2014 Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement, which incorporates the Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Blueprint, is the most ambitious, coordinated effort to restore a major estuary in the world. To ensure signatories to the agreement honor their commitments by 2025, in 2018, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation launched the Making History campaign including raising 1 Million diverse Voices to advocate before, engage, and educate elected officials and the executive branch at the federal, state, and local levels. We are working in Washington D.C. to secure strong federal funding for the Blueprint, improve federal programs and funding to achieve pollution reduction requirements, with an emphasis on agriculture, and protect key Federal laws and regulations that are critical to the success of the Chesapeake Bay Agreement. This includes working with both Congress and the Administration. We are at a critical juncture with the 2025 deadline approaching and expanding CBF’s federal presence is one of our key strategies to meeting our goals.
