(ANNAPOLIS, MD)—Chesapeake Bay Foundation President William C. Baker issued this statement concerning the results of the Chesapeake Bay Program's Bay Barometer.
"This is great news! The federal/state partnership we call the Bay Blueprint is working. But is the Bay saved? Not even close! That is why we urge Congress to fully fund EPA's Chesapeake Bay Program. We also urge EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to cease his ongoing efforts to weaken federal clean air and water laws. Now, more than ever, we need EPA as a federal partner that will champion clean water."
