2022 Maryland Endorsements

Clean Water Action has endorsed candidates in legislative races before the primary this year. More endorsements will be rolled for the general election. For the primary, Clean Water Actions endorsed candidates who have championed our priority issues as sponsors, in committee, or on the Floor. 

For the Senate, Clean Water Action decided to only endorse senators who championed our priority issues who also voted to remove trash incinerator subsidies when given the opportunity on the Senate Floor in 2021. In previous years, a wide majority of senators voted to remove subsidies for burning trash under Maryland's Renewable Portfolio Standard, an energy program that was designed to encourage new renewable energy development and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In 2021, when given the opportunity, most other environmental champions voted to support continued incinerator subsidies. We applaud Senators Elfreth, Lam, Pinsky, and Washington for their strong convictions.
