Maryland Oysters Are Threatened Again

(ANNAPOLIS, MD)—The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is calling for the Hogan Administration to follow good science, and to allow oyster restoration to continue as planned in the state.

CBF is prepared to analyze the Administration's long-awaited review of the state's oyster management plan which is expected to be released tomorrow, Friday, July 29.

"Oysters have been one of the real positive news stories in recent years. Governor Hogan has an opportunity to continue this progress by re-affirming the management of oysters through science," said Alison Prost, Maryland Executive Director of CBF. "We've invested in a sound oyster program. We must let it continue to work. Disregarding the encouraging results of our restoration work to date would not be in the best interest of the health of the Bay or the sustainability of the fishery." Read More

CBF Issues Statement on Congressional Efforts to Derail the Blueprint

(ANNAPOLIS, MD)—"We at CBF have been doing this work to Save the Bay for almost 50 years. The frustrations of a Bay getting worse have been huge. But now, with the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint, we are seeing real, system-wide improvements."

CBF President William C. Baker issued this statement following passage by the House of Representatives of the Interior and Environment Appropriations bill. The legislation contains an amendment that prohibits the Environmental Protection Agency from spending money to take actions against states that fail to meet pollution-reduction targets that the states set for themselves.

Chesapeake under Congressional Attack

(Baltimore Sun)— CBF President William C. Baker writes, "Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives approved anti-Save-the-Bay legislation that would turn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency into a paper tiger when it comes to reducing Chesapeake Bay pollution. Fortunately, there was some good news. Every Maryland representative, on both sides of the aisle, voted against the measure." Read More
