The overall goal is to put programs in place for the Chesapeake Bay to recover no later than 2025.

Today's meeting is a gathering of the Chesapeake Executive Council. The group establishes the policy agenda for Bay restoration efforts.

Environmental Protection Agency chief Lisa Jackson will join Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray, among others.

The overall goal is to put programs in place for the Bay to recover no later than 2025. But two years ago the group announced it would set short-term goals to improve accountability. An interim assessment is being presented today.
