The War on Wetlands

Record #:
The General Assembly passed a regulatory reform bill removing environmental protections from isolated wetlands that are under one acre in size. The bill will benefit coastal developers and lessen regulations for polluters. Wetlands store water, provide habitat for endangered species, and reduce flooding during tropical storms. Additional effects on wetlands are explored.
