American Agriculturalist Editor John Vogel reports that Congressional delegations and Chesapeake Bay state governors remain confident funding for Chesapeake Bay cleanup will be restored.
Vogel notes that Pennsylvania Ag Secretary Russell Redding came out of a recent congressional Chesapeake Bay Watershed Caucus meeting much relieved. “The Chesapeake Bay cleanup efforts will not go unfunded. I’m more confident of that after this meeting. We’ll be able to continue the progress made by the agriculture sector,” Redding said.
Redding had more than 52 reasons why. The watershed caucus includes 52 members of Congress from Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. And, the governors of all six states are firmly behind full funding.
