ANNAPOLIS – As climate change impacts worsen and war in Europe triggers spikes in fossil fuel prices, top Maryland environmental leaders will gather for a zoom press conference Monday at noon, February 28. Their message: The General Assembly must keep its promise to pass “bold” and “historic” legislation on climate change this year.
Polluting industries have used inaccurate claims to attack this year’s top legislation, the Climate Solutions Now Act – SB 528, introduced by Senator Paul Pinsky (D-Greenbelt). Environmental leaders and featured experts will set the record straight on Monday while expressing conditions for their continued support of the bill.
