ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and other state officials have accused upstream states of failing to take responsibility for pollution that is pouring into the Chesapeake Bay, after last week's record rainfall.
The Republican governor noted the trees, tires and other garbage now floating in the nation's largest estuary. He called the situation "an economic and ecological crisis."
Comptroller Peter Franchot, a Democrat, says, "We're literally drowning in Pennsylvania's trash."
