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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
