Yet, thousands of families in Utah and across the nation will lose out on an important opportunity unless Congress quickly acts to reauthorize a federal/state partnership called the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program.

No one would have blamed them. The iconic coach who recruited them was gone. Playing in the NCAA tournament, the carrot for every player, was not an option, at least for another year. Some of their teammates had already left, to the NBA and other schools. For the five who stayed, leaving was never an option — and the best thing that could have happened to UConn’s basketball program. “I’m glad these guys believed i...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-577762872014-04-04T22:26:34.83-06:00" id="#license-2014-04-04T22:26:34.83-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

EPA’s Chesapeake Bay Program has been going on for a long time, responding to dire circumstances in the region. Nothing could have been more clear than the abject deficiencies of state, county and other agencies and NGOs for land use, infrastructure, development and regulatory planning in the region.
