HARRISBURG – Lancaster County Sen. Scott Martin has been reappointed to serve on PA’s delegation to the Chesapeake Bay Commission for the 2021-22 Legislative Session. The Commission is a tri-state legislative panel created in 1980 to advise members of Congress and the General Assemblies of Maryland, Virginia, and PA on issues concerning the bay and its watershed. As a member of the commission over the past two years, Martin has prioritized new resources to help local farmers reduce run-off pollution. This includes creation of the Conservation Excellence Grant Program and the REAP tax credit program to support better water quality, both locally and throughout the watershed. Martin said reducing pollution in the bay watershed requires a strong partnership between state, local, and federal governments, and he appreciates the chance to continue to play a leading role in finding new ways to approach this challenge.
