CBF Statement on Senate Letter Urging Bay Funding in Farm Bill

(ANNAPOLIS, MD)—As the Senate voted to go to conference with the House on the Farm Bill, a bipartisan group of 23 members of Congress from both the Senate and House, led by Senator Chris Van Hollen, in a letter urged support for Chesapeake Bay investment in the Farm Bill.  Lisa Feldt, Chesapeake Bay Foundation Vice President for Environmental Protection and Restoration, issued the following statement.

"This proposal would support farmers doing their part to restore local rivers, streams, and the Chesapeake Bay. These programs lead to cleaner water, local economic benefits, and a better bottom line for farmers.

"Thank you to Senator Van Hollen for his leadership and for the bipartisan members of Congress from across the Bay watershed for their support. As leaders in Congress finalize the Farm Bill, we urge them to include Senate funding levels for the Bay in the final legislation."
