Poultry Waste Regulation

I am in favor of regulation of poulty waste legislation for both VA and MD waters - they are all part of the Chesapeake Watershed.  We are trying very hard to clean up the Chesapeake, but if the waters flowing into it are polluted with poultry waste, we are fighting a losing battle.  We are all interconnected in our actions and the waters flowing into one are both a literal and actual symbol of this.  Please make sure runoff from both poultry waste and construction are regulated.
