2019 Environmental Priorities

January 9th began the 2019 Maryland General Assembly Session. Working with our statewide environmental organizations and partners, we are focusing on three main priorities:

  1. In conjunction with the statewide Maryland Climate Coalition and legislative champions in both the Senate and House of Delegates, we are working on the Clean Energy Jobs Act, a bill ensuring that Maryland gets 50% of its electricity from renewable energy sources like wind and solar by 2030. More information here.
  2. We are also lending our support on banning Styrofoam statewide. This would be mean no establishment or institution can serve on Styrofoam materials, including restaurants. More information here.
  3. The Healthy Green Maryland Amendment will add to our state constitution to propose lasting protections for breathable air, drinkable water, and makes the state a fiduciary for equal access to a healthy environment for present and future generations of Marylanders. More information here.
