Hogan Criticizes Trump Over Bay Funding

March 17th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan issued the following statement on the Trump Administration’s proposed Fiscal Year 2020 Budget, which would drastically cut funding for Chesapeake Bay restoration:

“As Governor of Maryland and Chairman of the Chesapeake Executive Council, protecting the Chesapeake Bay remains one of my top priorities. The EPA Administrator himself called the Chesapeake Bay Program a ‘high priority,’ making this week’s cut in the budget a total betrayal. These cuts are potentially devastating to restoration efforts at such a critical time.

“Here in Maryland, leaders from both sides of the aisle have taken a strong stance on environmental conservation, and we hope our leaders at the federal level will do the same. As I have every year, I will continue to urge our federal partners to protect these critical investments into ongoing Bay restoration efforts and work with our congressional delegation to restore funding.

“The Chesapeake Bay is a state and national treasure, and federal support is essential to improving the waterway’s health. We will not allow several decades of environmental restoration to be dismantled. We will continue to fight hard against any cuts to the cleanup program.”

    As Maryland citizens living within the
    Chesapeake Bay watershed we are obligated to pay into the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund, also known as the infamous flush tax.
    Mr. Trump seems to think that our $60.00 individual contribution is sufficient enough to allow him to pull funding away to build his precious wall.

      > Yes, build our wall. This Gov. is more of a rino than his father. Papa Larry wanted to impeach Nixon in 1974 for trivial matters when he should have been impeached 3 years earlier for taking us off the gold standard which destroyed our currency and led to our currant sad state of a ruling class of billionaires and the rest peasants on the dole and drugs.

    Yes the government needs to stop giving MD money for the this. Maryland has already taken our “flush tax” money and used it for general fund proposes. They don’t use it for what it’s intended for in the first place.
