In this hour of Midday, the Chesapeake Bay Journal’s Rona Kobell and Tim Wheeler catch us up on the big environmental stories of 2015, and give us a heads up on which policies affecting the Bay will sneak into 2016’s General Assembly starting tomorrow. The highs and lows of environmental news and policies.
