WASHINGTON (AP) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has been named the chairman of the Chesapeake Executive Council.

O'Malley pledged Thursday to lead the Chesapeake Bay Program into a new era of progress.
The governor says he hopes to have a new Chesapeake Bay Watershed agreement signed. The agreement is now in its draft form. It will be the fourth of its kind. It will set a series of goals to guide restoration efforts across the watershed.

O'Malley served two consecutive terms as chair in 2007 and 2008.
The Chesapeake Bay Program is a regional partnership that directs bay preservation and restoration.
