Virginia, Maryland Governors to Meet on Bay Restoration

June 3, 2010

The governor's of Maryland and Virginia are scheduled to meet in Baltimore Thursday with EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepi on Chesapeake Bay restoration, but the meeting is not on Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell's schedule.

The four are members of the Chesapeake Executive Council, which guides bay restoration efforts, along with Washington's mayor and the head of the Chesapeake Bay Commission. Rendell spokesman Barry Ciccocioppo said Thursday's council meeting was not on the Pennsylvania governor's schedule.

The meeting follows the EPA's release last month of a restoration strategy in response to a presidential order. On Wednesday, a flotilla carrying dozens of bay advocates landed in Annapolis, where they presented recommendations for carrying out the plan and spoke out against what they said was growing resistance from developers and agriculture interests.
