CBF Issues Statement on Senate Confirmation of Gina McCarthy
(ANNAPOLIS, MD)—Chesapeake Bay Foundation President William C. Baker issued this statement following Senate confirmation of Gina McCarthy as Administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency.
"We are delighted that Gina McCarthy has been confirmed. Her broad experience and collaborative approach bodes well for Chesapeake Bay issues. Bay restoration is achieving encouraging momentum, but government at all levels still faces significant challenges to reduce polluted runoff from urban and agricultural areas. It is essential that the EPA stays vigilant and does everything possible to enforce the Clean Water Act across the vast Chesapeake Bay region."
