On the Horizon – The Future of Maryland Environmental Policy #MACoCon

As the climate changes, public policy must adapt to meet new challenges and ensure a liveable future. 

Leaders in Maryland’s General Assembly take seriously the notion of climate change and stand ready to meet this challenge head-on. The most recent 2022 legislative session saw the passage of historic legislation aimed at reducing the state’s environmental impact. Many are now asking what’s next on the Old Line State’s climate agenda.
