A Maryland League of Conservation Voters (MDLCV) blog post (2019-10-03) announced the release of its 2019 Environmental Scorecard. The scorecard ranks Maryland senators and delegates based on key environmental votes they took during the 2019 Session. The scorecard also displays individual senate and house legislative district ratings on a map.
From the blog post:
Maryland became the first state to pass a statewide ban on Styrofoam food service products, and Maryland is facing the climate crisis head-on with the passage of the Clean Energy Jobs Act.
Environmental champions also took up the work of Chispa Maryland, the organization’s Latinx outreach program, to pass legislation that creates a permanent grant structure to fund the transition of Maryland’s school bus fleet from diesel to electric-powered. …
It’s time for us all to work together as the urgency of the climate crisis becomes more apparent with every passing day. All of these bills passed because of the work that Marylanders did in electing Delegates and Senators who prioritize a clean environment.
Once our elected officials return to Annapolis in January, we at Maryland LCV will be there to hold them accountable for their actions, or inactions.
