Trump Zeros Out Bay Program

In the new budget proposal, the EPA Bay program has been totally cut. Needless to say, a lot of digits are being spent on this in the region:

Bay Journal - Trump bid to axe Bay restoration funding draws fire

Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch - Trump budget axes funding for Chesapeake Bay cleanup

Capital Gazette (Annapolis, Md.) - Trump proposes complete defunding of Chesapeake Bay Program

The (Norfolk) Virginian-Pilot - Trump budget would slash funds for Chesapeake Bay cleanup from $73M a year to $0

Washingtonian (D.C.) - Trump Cuts to Chesapeake Bay Program Will Make the Potomac Dirtier, Environmentalists Say

York (Pa.) Dispatch - Trump proposes eliminating Chesapeake Bay program

Dover (Del.) Post - President’s budget shuts down Chesapeake Bay clean up

The Baltimore (Md.) Sun - Chesapeake takes a Trumping

I'm quite sure the Bay Program will survive, but it will be a good opportunity to make them justify their existence.
