Statement from Sen. Yaw on Release of 2023/2024 Chesapeake Bay & Watershed Report Card

HARRISBURG – State Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23) today issued the following statement upon the release of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) annual report card:

“This most recent progress report speaks to the commitment of our local, state and federal partners, as well as the private partnerships and collaboration with the agriculture community in Pennsylvania,” said Sen. Gene Yaw, Chairman of the Chesapeake Bay Pennsylvania Delegation.  “The report illustrates the tremendous progress being made in the upper Chesapeake Bay, with a B-, a score second only to the lower Bay which is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. It also reinforces the need to invest in our Clean Streams Fund program, which is quickly drawing down federal ARPA dollars and has been positively transforming the Bay watershed since its inception only a few years ago.”
