Our Legislative Actions
Our legislative actions are focused on stormwater, trash, trees, and healthy communities. If you support a clean environment and strong, healthy communities, Blue Water Baltimore invites you to join our effort and reach out to your representatives.
The Maryland General Assembly session ended on Monday, April 8, and the environment fared well. Our friends at the Maryland League of Conservation Voters compile a comprehensive accounting of environmental wins and losses; you can learn more HERE.
Blue Water Baltimore is proud to announce that HB 109 / SB 285 passed! With your support, these bills to ban expanded polystyrene foam (commonly referred to as Styrofoam) food containers passed both chambers of Maryland’s General Assembly on 3/12/2019 with a veto-proof majority. Maryland is the first state in the nation to pass this regulation!
