A massive coalition is urging the state to move towards 100% clean electricity as soon as possible. This pathway can be accelerated by first doubling the state’s current mandate for clean electricity to 50% by 2030, determining the best plan to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2023, and implementing that plan by 2040.
Rights embedded in our founding documents - to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness - are threatened by a damaged environment. Development without consideration of human health is a danger to every Marylander's freedom to enjoy pure water, clean air, and healthy communities now and in the next generation. The Healthy Green Maryland Amendment explicitly protects your right to a healthy environment now and in the future by enshrining it in the state declaration of rights.
