After four hours of debate and a series of failed attempts to amend it, a sweeping climate change bill won preliminary approval in the Maryland Senate on Thursday. The Climate Solutions Now Act of 2022 would set a statewide goal, for 2030, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60% of emission levels recorded in 2006. For 2045, it would set the emissions goal to net-zero.
