Legislative Initiatives

A healthy and vibrant Chesapeake Bay requires victories both on the water and in the legislature.

The Chesapeake BaySavers focus our energy, financial resources, and legislative expertise to help lawmakers pass legislation that supports and deny legislation that undermines restoration efforts for the Chesapeake Bay. Over the years we have…

PROTECTED millions of dollars in the Governor’s budget for oyster restoration

INCREASED the Oyster Shell Recycling Tax Credit

PROMOTED legislative measures to support the aquaculture industry

FOUGHT legislation that would hinder the establishment of oyster sanctuaries in the Bay

SUPPORTED the capturing of lawbreakers stealing from oyster sanctuaries

CONTINUED to fight against the expansion of power dredging

& so much more!
