"We don’t get to a better America by gutting funds for the agencies charged with protecting our water, air, and health. Reducing EPA’s budget by nearly $3 billion will stymie the agency, leaving communities to fend for themselves."

On March 8th, an unlikely alliance of Republican and Democratic legislators, residents from across Maryland, and environmental advocates gathered to demand the end of public subsidies for trash incineration in the state’s Renewable Portfolio Standard.

"It is a pollutant,” said Del. Lorig Charkoudian (D-Montgomery County). “It is making people sick and the more money we subsidies to burning trash and non-clean energy is money that we are not putting into solar. We are not putting into wind. We are not putting into all of things that are going to help us truly move into a response to the climate crisis we are in." Environmental advocates say it is wrong for Maryland rate-payers to pay extra money on their utility bills to cover the cost of trash incinerators.

"The BRESCO trash incinerator, in my neighborhood, has received $10 million worth of subsidies in the past six years paid for by Maryland rate payers," said Jennifer Krunze, Maryland program organizer for Clean Water Action. Money advocates point out that could have gone to help promote clean energy sources such as wind and solar power.

Clean Water Action endorses Pam Iovino in the State Senate, District 37 special election. Pam’s 23 years of public service makes her uniquely qualified to be your state senator.

Thanks to your support last year we created a green wave that elected a slate of state legislature candidates who are already charting new paths for environmental protection in Harrisburg. And now you have a unique opportunity on April 2nd to keep that momentum going.
