February 17, 2011 – Hour 2

There weren’t very many surprises in Governor Martin O’Malley’s 2011 State of the State Address, but there was one big one.  When Governor O’Malley announced a proposal to ban the installation of septic tanks in new developments across the state, it sent shock waves through environmental, business, and political circles.  In this week’s episode of On Delmarva we speak about what the ban would mean economically and environmentally.  Joining us are:
Richard E. Hall, Maryland Secretary of Planning
Gail M. Bartkovich, President of the Wicomico County Council
Tom  Horton, On Delmarva correspondent and former environmental reporter for the Baltimore Sun
