Maryland lawmakers vow to fight to keep funding for Chesapeake Bay.

Senator Ben Cardin and Congressman Tom Carper hosted a press conference at Hemingway's Restaurant in Stevensville to talk about the importance of Chesapeake Bay cleanup funding. 

President Trump has proposed to drastically reduce or eliminate funding for the Environmental Protection Agency which could directly impact funding for the Chesapeake Bay.

Local elected officials are calling on congressional appropriators to reject the President's budget proposal.
