Today we at Maryland League of Conservation Voters (Maryland LCV) give Governor Hogan a mark of “Needs Improvement” on his first environmental report card, noting that the Governor’s actions don’t always match his words when it comes to prioritizing the environment and public health. With a new President who has promised to rollback federal protections and nominated an environmental cabinet that denies climate change, the organization looks to Governor Hogan to show that conservation is not a partisan concern and that supporting public health and protecting natural treasures are good for business.
Here is the 2017 Governor’s Report Card and a copy of the press release
LARRY HOGAN’S OVERALL GRADE: Needs Improvement
