Chesapeake Bay Foundation Action Alert – Withdraw SB926 Now

The following Action Alert has been sent out by the CBF.  Click here for an easy way to take action

The Chesapeake Bay and her precious wetlands need your help TODAY.

Senate Bill 926, a measure that weakens the authority of local wetlands boards, will be considered at tomorrow’s Senate Agriculture, Conservation, and Natural Resources. Your state senator, Sen. Jeff McWaters, has introduced this bill. Please ask Senator McWaters to withdraw this bill, which will have unintended harmful consequences.

CBF and many other conservation organizations oppose this bill, as it undermines Virginia’s effective, four-decades-old tidal wetlands program that relies upon local citizen wetland boards, with oversight by the Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC), to protect our valuable tidal wetlands.Time is of the essence. Please contact  Sen. McWaters today, and tell him SB 926 is a step backward and to please withdraw it immediately!
