Chesapeake Bay funding gutted in Trump budget: Eastern Shore leaders oppose cuts

Eastern Shore politicians on both sides of the aisle are united against the steep funding cuts to the Chesapeake Bay Program in the Trump administration's proposed 2020 budget.

If approved, the budget would slash funding for the program by 90 percent from its current level of $73 million to $7.3 million.

"It ain't over till the fat lady sings", I'll wait for the final outcome in congress. Each budget the Chesapeake Bay has been involved in cuts. Some happen, some didn't from what I recall.  Trump's full of ideas, but we see that not every politician agrees with him.

Not worried in the slightest. Congress rejected his cuts the last couple years when his party had control of all three branches of the federal government and it ain't gonna be any easier this time around.

The bay's health hasn't improved.  Why keep throwing money at it?  The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is a joke, they act like they do so much.  If you really want to add money to the budget, trim the fat in the EPA and state.

I still love Trump. No matter what you post you will not change that. I'm sure there is a GREAT reason for it. I realize this is your site, but please don't tilte posts that appear to be "liberal left" leaning. That [curd] will not be accepted well here. How about this, "Undeserving funds to a corrupt Maryland government finally stopped by Trump". Probably more accurate anyway.

The title of the post came directly from the article cited. Not that it matters to anyone not inclined to read it.  I was actually believing the bay was healthier today than in had been a decade ago.  Maybe.  But people think twice before changing their oil over a street grate marked Chesapeake Bay Drainage.  Not a bad thing.

In 2017 the Bay was graded in better shape the 2018. All that rain in 2018 had a bad effect on the Bay.

If the cuts mean some folks won't get paid for doing nothing, I'm for it. I'm sure the MD politicians on both sides will do what they can. At least I would hope so, LOL.

And no amount of government funding will change that.

Are you surprised?  Why would it be anything other than Steve's way?  Its his site.  He doesn't owe it to you or anyone else to run it a specific way.  One post where he defends himself from something as small as a title of a post that he pulled from another source isn't enough to think of him as a dictator.  There are other sites that run a tight ship but Steve is more fair and patient than you'd even begin to understand.  Ask me how I know.

I respectfully disagree. The Foundation has done a lot for the recycling of oyster shells, which improves reef environments, which in turn benefits water quality and blue crab population (most near-shore marine species, actually). That's just one item from an exhaustive list I can rattle off.

Hahaha, this drama never ends.  And Wallco Cry about someone posting in his mind "political theater" on this site is like Trump supporting anti-nepotism laws.  When the shoe fits Trolls will be Trolls.  Don't get all fussy now, just busting balls. 

In any case, I understand the negativity towards CBF because their lobbying efforts have a direct result on our watermen.  Survey this, dredge that = a "scientific" grade.  They in turn use the grade to lobby politicians for stricter regulations and raise taxes(O'Malley Rain Tax) in support of their mission.  Politicians will say; You Watermen can voice your opinion at the annual Town Halls when we all know [dang] well it goes in one ear and out the other.  Instead of making life better for these hard workers they add more obstacles without any relief.   

I think we can all agree the health of the Bay is crucial to our economy.  It's a 6 billion dollar industry and if don't have any sort of management program to protect it than all the progress we've made will be all for nothing.  Planting trees along streams, shorelines and farm properties, Oyster bed restoration with reef balls to help oxygen levels in the water to limit dead zones and upgrading sewage and septic systems to limit nutrients are measures that have proven to work.  To say those efforts have no positive results is flat out wrong and 73 million is chump change in a 4.75 Trillion budget.
