News and Updates

The 2014 General Assembly session ended April 7th exactly at midnight. As is typical during an election year, legislators sidestepped much of the environmental communities' priority legislation to fight climate change, clean up our waterways and the Chesapeake Bay, or protect the health of our families from fracking and pesticides.

Given the outcome of this legislative session and the significant issues we still face, it is clear that the 2014 elections matter. We look forward to fighting with you to bring more environmental champions to the Maryland General Assembly on June 24th and November 4th.
