General Assembly Environmental Scores Slip In 2013

Ratings on environmental policy for Maryland legislators slipped last year, despite passage of a major offshore wind energy bill championed by Gov. Martin O’Malley.

The Maryland League of Conservation Voters released its 2013 scorecard Monday, giving lawmakers an average score of 64% in the House of Delegates and 55% in the Senate. Those scores are down slightly from last year’s 69% in the House and 63% in the Senate.

In the Senate, Republicans scored an average of 12% compared to Democrats’ 70%, and Republicans scored 26% in the House compared to Democrats’ 81%.

I think they scored in the bank. I just received my Wicomico Co. tax statement for 2013-2014 and there is a $60 tax for a Bay Restoration Fee. Can anyone in Annapolis tell me where that money goes? I would guess that part of it goes to The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and their PAC fund to support liberal Democrats and the liberal EPA. And then they will sue a farmer if his cow takes a dump in a cornfield.
