    I liked Calvert County better when there were only two stoplights.

    It is such a shame, and so sad about the Chesapeake Bay. My fave book is Chesapeake by Michener.

    John Smith said, when he explored the Chesapeake..."Heaven and earth have never agreed better to frame a place for man's habitation."

    At the end of the day we all know no matter what cuts are proposed no one except the top 1% are going to see any reduction in taxes so I for one think $72 million is reasonable for the Bay. I'd like to see funding increased.

    That's less then what Trump is projected to spend flying to Florida to golf every weekend so if we can stop him from doing that there is the savings right there

    why are you in favor of the Feds confiscating money and then "giving it back "? You don't see how crazy that is?.??

    Unless you consider money for schools, roads, hospitals , bridges, tunnels confiscated and insane I don't really see much difference in using the funds to improve something that directly effects and is effected by of a large percentage of the east coast population

    How would you spend the $72,000,000.00 and what results should the tax payers see from those efforts?

    You missed the point. Completely. Again, why should we want the Federal government to confiscate our money and then dole it back out to the states again, after wasting a bunch of it on overhead in the process. If the bay needs money spent on something specific, affected states can fund those things directly.

    And the bay does not affect a large percent of MDs population, but I agree it is a treasure.

    Almost the entire state of Md is in the watershed. Therefore the state does contribute negatively and positively to the health of the bay. Hence why I said a large portion of Md's population. Only Garrett county is excluded


    State government can be just as inefficient. Especially when you have six states and D.C. running similar programs to reach one goal. That is redundant. When the fed could have one program. A lot of federal dollars are also given directly to NGO's and don't go back to the states as you claim

    That's even worse. Having the Federal government acting as middle man is grossly inefficient. Period. The bloated mess desparately needs to be cut down in size and scope.
