Headline climate package forwarded to Hogan’s desk, faces possible veto

April 4, 2022

Maryland lawmakers made its final advance Thursday on the legislature’s premier climate package, sending the measure to Gov. Larry Hogan (R) who has called it a “reckless and controversial energy tax bill.” Democrats, who hold majorities in both houses, passed the Climate Solutions Now Act of 2022 (SB 528) with enough time to override a potential governor veto before April 11, the end of session. Hogan criticized the bill mid-March as it was being debated in the Senate, though its alterations to property tax law only concern exemptions for certain solar users.
