Annual Report to Governor & General Assembly due Nov. 15.

In April 2007, the Climate Change Commission was established by the Governor (Executive Order 01.01.2007.07). In November 2014, its mission and membership were expanded (Executive Order 01.01.2014.14). In 2016, the Climate Change Commission was replaced by the Commission on Climate Change.

To address the causes and ramifications of climate change in Maryland, the first Commission developed a Plan of Action with benchmarks and timetables for its implementation. For the Governor and the General Assembly, the Commission provided advice and expertise on issues relating to climate change.

Effective June 1, 2016, the Climate Change Commission was reconstituted as the Commission on Climate Change, and established by statute in the Department of the Environment (Chapter 429, Acts of 2015).

The Commission was assisted by the Adaptation and Response Working Group, the Greenhouse Gas and Carbon Mitigation Working Group, and the Scientific and Technical Working Group.
