Stormwater “deal” still faces opposition

In today’s coverage from Center Maryland are dispiriting comments from Senator Paul Pinsky:

The co-chairman of the General Assembly panel that must approve a compromise on tough new stormwater runoff regulations denounced the deal Thursday, calling it “an abomination” crafted with little regard for the environment.

The opposition of Sen. Paul Pinsky, the Prince George’s County Democrat who serves as co-chairman of the Administrative, Executive and Legislative Review Committee, suggests the compromise on stormwater rules remains tentative and could still face a difficult challenge before winning approval.

MACo has supported the carefully-crafted deal to follow MDE “guidance” with emergency regulations to solidify the reframed interpretation of the deadlines and applications of the new regulations, which go into effect on may 4 of this year.
