In Their Words …
" Keeper of political scorecards on environmental votes, this small but feisty group actually endorses candidates who might be good for green causes. Its small staff proves that you don't need a huge budget to make a difference. Still, more money couldn't hurt. "

2015 Legislative Wrap-Up

fracking_rally_4.3.15As Annapolis cleans up the confetti after Sine Die, we celebrated several victories for smart environmental policy. Despite a new Administration and more than 60 new legislators, the 2015 Maryland General Assembly took several important actions to ensure Maryland is a healthy and prosperous place for families and communities, to protect the Chesapeake Bay and local waters, and to promote clean energy.

Our legislators heard our voices loud and clear that Marylanders value the environment. During the three-month session, we organized more than 10,000 emails and almost 1,000 phone calls to legislators, urging the protection of our quality of life and our natural resources.

Governor Hogan Shows Promise but Earns Mixed Marks for Environmental Record

May 12th- On the final announced bill-signing day of the 2015 General Assembly Session, a new report gives the Hogan Administration mixed marks on a wide range of environmental priorities. Our 100 day assessment of Governor Hogan's environmental actions gives the Administration positive marks on such issues as phosphorus management tool regulations and environmental appointments, and negative marks for a power plant emissions law withdrawal and budget reductions for key agencies.

The report describes the Governor's policies on climate change and reducing pollution in the Chesapeake Bay as "unknown." The Governor has also not announced whether or not he will sign a hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") moratorium bill. As the Governor's four-year term continues, we will release regular report cards assessing his Administration's environmental commitment and progress.
