Chesapeake Cleanup Gets $13 Million More In Obama Budget

Play associated audio

BALTIMORE (AP) Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts would get $13 million more under President Obama's newly released budget.

While the federal Environmental Protection Agency's overall budget would shrink slightly, funding for the bay, Mississippi River and Great Lakes would increase. The increase would bring funding for EPA's Chesapeake Bay Program to $63 million.

A budget summary released by the White House says the increased Chesapeake Bay funding supports Obama's May executive order, which calls for the development of a bay restoration strategy.

The EPA budget summary says the increased funding will support the federal agency's regulatory, permitting, modeling and reporting efforts.
