"Bay Advocates Send Obama Restoration Strategy"

"ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- A coalition of former governors, congressmen, scientists and others sent the Obama Administration their proposed Chesapeake Bay restoration strategy, a plan much tougher than the one being developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

One EPA official said the plan includes some measures that would require new legislation from Congress and other aspects would be better handled by the states.

The 24-point plan calls for significantly expanding farming regulations."
