CBF Issues Statement Following Gov. Corbett's Signing of the Buffer Bill

(HARRISBURG, PA)—Harry Campbell, Chesapeake Bay Foundation Pennsylvania Executive Director, issued this statement following Governor Corbett's signing of HB1565. The legislation removes important protections for Pennsylvania's most pristine waterways.

"We believe this legislation weakens Pennsylvania's ability to protect its most important, sensitive, and high quality waterways. It also will make implementing the Commonwealth's commitments to the restoring local rivers and streams much more difficult.

"This legislation will put a greater burden on Pennsylvania's taxpayers, businesses, farmers, and local governments to further reduce pollution. Having removed this important requirement to protect and restore local water quality, the Administration must now address how it intends to make up the difference."
