Statement from Kim Coble on Governor Hogan’s position on Climate Solutions

 Governor Hogan is wrong, the Climate Solutions Now Act is NOT an energy tax on Marylanders, and we are already paying the price for not investing in the clean energy future in higher public health costs and energy costs. He’s also wrong about Maryland’s performance in reducing emissions. Maryland is no longer the leader in reducing climate pollution, despite being one of the three most vulnerable states to climate change and sea-level rise. 
We are grateful for our senate leaders in President Ferguson, Chairman Pinsky, and so many strong Senate climate champions in standing strong on the senate floor for the strongest bill possible for the sake of our state and our future.
