A lot of folks talk about cherishing the Chesapeake. But for legislators, what really matters is what laws they support at defining moments – when the stakes are high, and the Bay really needs them to take a stand.
This is such a moment. Several co-sponsors in the U.S. Senate and House recently introduced the Chesapeake Clean Water and Ecosystem Restoration Act, which would set legally-binding limits on how much pollution Bay area states and the District of Columbia can allow into the Chesapeake.
My colleagues Kim Ethridge and Mike Dougherty at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation created a very informative, interactive map, which you can look at by clicking here. The map lets you find who your Congressional representatives are, and if they have signed on as co-sponsors for this critically important legislation. Once you know that, you can click here to discover what actions you can take in support of the bill. Click here if you would like to contact CBF to find out more about how you can help.
