» Call your senators and representative to continue to fund and enforce the Chesapeake Total Maximum Daily Load

The Attorney’s General of MD, DC, and Virginia have written an op-ed in the Washington Post regarding an amendment introduced by Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) to the 2018 appropriations bill to defund an important plan to continue to restore the Chesapeake Bay:

“In September, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) introduced an amendment to the 2018 House appropriations bill that would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from spending funds to enforce the restoration plan known as the Chesapeake Total Maximum Daily Load.”

Read about it here, then call your Senators and congressional Representative to urge them to reject this amendment.
