Federal efforts to clean up the Chesapeake Bay are falling short. So says a group of scientists and former politicians.

Matt Bush reports.

The group is led by Gerald Winegrad, a former Maryland state senator. He says last year's federal disaster declaration for the Bay's Blue Crab population isn't the only failure of the Environmental Protection Agency's first cleanup plan for the Bay.
