The bill to establish Maryland Climate Education Week dies

Maryland State House.

Maryland's House Bill 993 (PDF), which would have established Maryland Climate Education Week, died in committee when the legislature adjourned sine die on April 8, 2024.

If enacted, the bill would have required the state's governor annually to proclaim the first week of April as Maryland Climate Education Week. The proclamation would have urged the state's residents to "participate in educational activities and initiatives that promote an awareness of climate change" and "take action toward the State's climate commitments."

Introduced by Dana Stein (D-District 11B), House Bill 993 sailed through the House of Delegates on a 100-3 vote.
