NATIONAL LCV CALLS ON MARYLAND GOVERNOR LARRY HOGAN TO SUPPORT THE CLIMATE SOLUTIONS NOW ACT
Following the Maryland General Assembly’s passage of the Climate Solutions Now Act, the national League of Conservation Voters released the following statement from Bill Holland, Senior Director of State Policy, Advocacy, & Network-wide Campaigns urging Governor Hogan to support the bill and sign it into law:
“Last week Maryland’s General Assembly passed the strongest carbon pollution reduction goal in the country. The Climate Solutions Now Act is the most significant action on climate we have seen anywhere in the country in 2022. This is a critical moment. The consequences of the climate crisis are growing and Marylanders feel the impacts from hotter summers, rising sea levels, and stronger storms every day. In the strongest possible terms, we call on Governor Hogan to support this crucial bill and allow it to become law. He should be championing such a win-win for Maryland.
From new electric school buses so our kids can breathe easier to stronger efficiency standards in new buildings, this bill will create a cleaner healthier future and invest in thousands of good-paying clean energy jobs for Marylanders. Thanks to the tireless leadership of Senator Paul Pinsky, Delegate Kumar Barve, Delegate Dana Stein, Senate President Bill Ferguson, and Speaker Adrienne Jones, the Climate Solutions Now Act is a chance to re-establish Maryland’s climate and clean energy leadership. Governor Hogan should stand up for Maryland’s environment and follow the legislature’s leadership.”
