Resistance Forming Over Trump EPA Cuts That Would Cut Chesapeake Bay Funding
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s a President Donald Trump proposal that threatens to gut efforts to clean up the Chesapeake Bay.
Alex DeMetrick reports, there’s a resistance forming just over the Bay Bridge, aiming to stop the budget cut before it happens.
“I’m tired of defense,” says Senator Ben Cardin. “It’s only been two months.”
Two months, that is, since the president released his budget plans. His EPA budget proposal, in particular, would eliminate $73 million the agency spends to head up the Chesapeake Bay Program.
