Maryland governor taps gas industry official to help regulate gas industry

February 27, 2023

In his inaugural address, Maryland Gov. Wes Moore (D) pledged to speed the state’s shift away from fossil fuels and toward 100 percent clean energy by 2035. “Clean energy will not just be a part of our economy,” Moore declared in January. “Clean energy will define our economy in Maryland.” But roughly a month later, the Democrat is angering some of his environmental supporters by nominating a natural gas industry official to the state Public Service Commission, a five-member body that regulates utility companies and plays a pivotal role in the state’s efforts to combat climate change.
