O'Malley Commits Maryland to Reducing Greenhouse Gases

Earlier this week, the Governor signed Maryland onto the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a cooperative effort by 10 states in the Northeast to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The requirement to join the RGGI was part of the Healthy Air Act, passed by the legislature in 2006.

In addition, O'Malley signed an executive order creating a Climate Change Commission that will be made up of key state officials, a representative from the University of Maryland and up to six others appointed by the General Assembly.
