Listen to the story here.

States in the Chesapeake Bay watershed have a poor record of eliminating pollution in the fragile estuary. The Obama Administration just released a draft plan for the Environmental Protection Agency to hold states accountable for future progress, and Sen.

“Draft Strategy for Chesapeake Bay Focused on Federal Action and Accountability”
“U.S. to tighten rules for bay cleanup,” Baltimore Sun
“Bill would put law behind Bay cleanup, provide new funding,” Bay Journal
