The Maryland Climate Commission will meet to get public input on Maryland’s Climate Action Plan. This plan, required by Maryland’s 2009 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act, contains over 150 programs and policies designed to slash statewide global warming pollution by 25% by 2020. The commission, made up of elected officials, advocates and heads of state agencies, is charged with reporting on our state’s progress to date and making recommendations about next steps.
The hearing, one of five taking place across the state, is an opportunity to shape the Climate Commission’s final recommendations — which will go to the Governor and the General Assembly before the next legislative session.
The state is facing some momentous decisions in the coming year. For example, the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act (GGRA) will be up for renewal in the 2016 legislative session.
