ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley is hosting the Chesapeake Bay Executive Council.
The council is meeting Monday in Annapolis. The council is scheduled to sign an agreement to update a 14-year-old plan to guide restoration and conservation in the bay's six-state watershed.
Among the issues the plan covers is how the states and the federal government will address the impact of climate change on the nation's largest estuary.
A meeting is scheduled in the statehouse. That will be followed by a news conference at the Annapolis City Dock.
