Representative Frank Kratovil

Key Coastal Communities:
Eastern Shore

Leadership: Rep. Kratovil made support for the Chesapeake Bay one of the cornerstones of his campaign. Rep. Kratovil pledged to support the Clean Water Restoration Act, resisted the pressure to support expanded offshore driling in presently off-limits areas, supports a moratorium on menhaden fishing off the Atlantic coast-restoring the population of this critical filter fish in the Chesapeake Bay, and he will fight for increased funding to help farmers make the switch to best environmental practices – to reduce the nutrient pollution devastating the Chesapeake Bay.

Rep. Kratovil has cosponsored:

  • H.R. 3650 (Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Amendments Act of 2009)
  • H.R. 1771 (Chesapeake Bay Science, Education, and Ecosystem Enhancement Act of 2009)
  • H.R. 965 (Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Watertrails Network Continuing Authorization Act)
  • H.R. 1053 (Chesapeake Bay Accountability and Recovery Act of 2009)
  • H.R. 4187 (To amend the Water Resources Development Act of 1996 to make modifications to the Chesapeake Bay environmental restoration and protection program)
