I was surprised to see that the funding cuts for the Chesapeake Bay Program were not covered in the Mount Vernon Gazette. We are far from the Bay here in Alexandria, but what we do here in the watershed has a big effect on the Chesapeake Bay.
From Chesapeake Bay Foundation: "With final numbers now available, the Trump Administration is proposing drastic cuts to the Chesapeake Bay Program. Currently funded at $73 million, the budget proposes reducing funding to $7.3 million, a 90 percent cut. EPA's Chesapeake Bay Program coordinates science, research, and modeling to implement the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint, and provides grants to state and local governments and others to help reduce pollution."
