The article Legal Issues Affecting Local Governments in Implementing the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act (Legal Issues or "the article") adds measurably to the growing literature on the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act ("the Act") and offers a significant amount of historical background. However, inasmuch as the article attempts to ascribe certain areas of legislative intent on the part of the General Assembly in adopting the Act that the authors of this comment believe are inaccurate, this comment will attempt to clarify those areas of legislative and regulatory intent. Additionally, this comment will discuss the regulatory development process of the Chesapeake Bay Local Assistance Board and the nature of the regulations themselves, to clarify several inaccuracies present in the article.
