Our environment is the most important resource we have, but it also our most delicate. Climate change is affecting everyone, already. We have already seen the earliest strikes as storms increase in intensity and frequency. We must prepare for these risks and do what we can to prevent them.
- Flooding: Lands in District 12 that are currently at a high risk of flooding will be so for the foreseeable future. We must work with both Federal and Maryland resources to develop flood mitigation strategies that can permanently protect our communities.
- Chesapeake Bay: The Bay is our shared resource here in Maryland. It supports our business and play and we ask much of it. We can do our part to stop polluted runoff. This will ensure the wildlife population that gives us business and play will still be there tomorrow.
