The House of Delegates has passed HB1220, which is a bill that opens the door for implementation of more sustainable and integrated stormwater management practices and levies a charge of 25 cents per square foot of impervious area on new development. The $ will go toward various restoration efforts to clean up the Chesapeake Bay. Lots of other stuff in it, an update will follow.
The Bill is now on to the Senate. Senate version here.
Those for it can contact their State Senator.
For those against it, we ask – If not this, then What???
