Maryland Gov. Hogan presses congressional leaders to increase federal funding for Chesapeake Bay

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is pressing congressional leaders to not only block an attempt by the Trump administration to drastically cut federal funding for the Chesapeake Bay, but increase it to $90 million.

President Donald Trump’s proposed $4.7 trillion budget, released earlier this month, includes a 90 percent cut in funding to the $73 million Chesapeake Bay Program, which oversees the multistate bay restoration effort.
