Hill lawmakers to get Chesapeake update
House lawmakers are slated to receive an update Thursday on what the federal and state government need to do to implement a new Chesapeake Bay restoration strategy.
Members of the Chesapeake Bay Commission are scheduled to appear in Washington at a working lunch with members of the House Chesapeake Bay Task Force. The task force will also hear from natural resources and environmental officials from Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
The Environmental Protection Agency is preparing to release its strategy later this month for restoring the bay. EPA officials say the strategy, developed in response to a presidential order last year, will put the bay on a pollution diet, requiring cuts from a variety of sources across the six-state bay watershed.
