Maryland joins U.S. Climate Alliance, commits to climate goals

February 1, 2023

Maryland has joined the U.S. Climate Alliance and is supporting efforts to address climate change, including reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, land preservation, and other actions, Gov. Wes Moore announced last week. Moore’s $63.1 billion budget proposal, released Jan. 20, includes $422 million for environmental protection in Maryland. The investment would be made through programs funded by the transfer tax supporting land preservation, operations, and capital projects for state parks. It would accompany $129 million in general funds for the Great Maryland Outdoors Act’s revision of the transfer tax repayment provision.
