Chesapeake Bay advocates plan to unveil a new Bay restoration proposal on December 30 in Annapolis, as reported by the Baltimore Sun.
Former Maryland state Sen. Gerald Winegrad said the proposal will be given to Obama administration officials developing a bay restoration strategy in response to a presidential order issued earlier this year.
Winegrad said officials involved in the 1983 birth of the current federal-state restoration effort, including former governors, congressmen and environmental officials, are among the proposal’s signatories.
The former state lawmaker said the 37 signatories believe adoption of the measures is critical to bay restoration. Winegrad said they are also urging an end to what they call the politics of postponement when it comes to bay health. //
