Bipartisan Coal Transition Bill Withdrawn by House Sponsor

March 9, 2021

House Bill 66 is a bipartisan bill that would have phased out Maryland’s coal-fired plants and established a Fossil Fuel Community Transition Fund and a Fossil Fuel Transition Advisory Council to mitigate economic impacts for displaced employees.
