Governor-elect Larry Hogan told Eastern Shore farmers last month that his “first fight” in office would be against new state rules aiming to curb phosphorus run-off into the Bay from chicken manure. We discuss how significant the rules are with environmental advocate Bob Gallagher, Washington Post reporter Jenna Johnson, and chicken farmer Lee Richardson.

Then, sportswriter Mark Hyman breaks down the Ravens season, college football playoffs and the success of the University of Maryland basketball team.

Plus, Republicans, already in charge of the U.S. House, began their leadership of the Senate last week. How did they come to rule Congress? UMBC political science professor Thomas Schaller says he's got the answer in his new book, The Stronghold: How Republicans Captured Congress but Surrendered the White House.
