Federal partners outline planned actions for 2013 to protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay

December 18 2012

The Federal Leadership Committee for the Chesapeake Bay, comprised of the senior officials of the federal agencies responsible for Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts, issued their Fiscal Year 2013 Action Plan, outlining efforts projected for 2013 to continue progress toward protecting and restoring the Chesapeake Bay.

The Fiscal Year 2013 Action Plan, required by Executive Order 13508, the Strategy for Protecting and Restoring the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, demonstrates the Federal agencies’ commitment to working together and with state partners to restore clean water, recover habitat, sustain fish and wildlife, and conserve land and increase public access throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Collaborative actions will also enhance supporting efforts to expand citizen stewardship, develop environmental markets, respond to climate change, and strengthen science.
