Today we at the Maryland League of Conservation Voters celebrate an early victory this session with one of our major climate bills, The Clean Energy Jobs Act, passing out of the Maryland General Assembly today, despite Governor Hogan’s veto of the bill last session.
We applaud the General Assembly for standing up for Maryland’s clean energy economy and increasing our state’s renewable energy. This bill continues Maryland’s leadership on combatting climate change and reflects what we all know; Maryland voters want action on climate.
We can no longer depend on the national administration to take action against climate change, and action at the state level is more important than ever. We are enthused to have a General Assembly taking up the reins of leadership on climate change.
