2018 Environmental Priorities

January 10th began the 2018 Maryland General Assembly Session. Working with our statewide environmental organizations and partners, we are focusing on four 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.
  • Getting back to our roots, we will be working on the Forest Conservation Act, updating and improving current laws surrounding forests in Maryland. More information here.
  • We additionally join with our partners reforming the transparency and stakeholder process of the Public Service Commission.  More information here.
