Bay foundation plans announcement
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation says it plans to make a major announcement Tuesday about its suit against the Environmental Protection Agency a day before the federal agency is to release its Chesapeake Bay restoration strategy.
The foundation, which put the suit on hold while the strategy was being developed, sued the EPA to force it to take action to reduce bay pollution. Months later, President Obama issued an executive order directing the EPA to develop the restoration strategy.
Foundation President Will Baker has said the stay could be lifted if the foundation felt the agency was not making the necessary commitment to bay restoration. Baker is to be joined in Annapolis for the announcement by former Gov. Harry Hughes and former Sen. Bernie Fowler.
