Report to Governor & General Assembly due Oct. 31, 2022 (Chapter 645, Acts of 2021).

In June 2021, the Commission for the Innovation and Advancement of Carbon Markets and Sustainable Tree Plantings was formed by the General Assembly (Chapter 645, Acts of 2021).

The Commission is developing a plan to support the State's carbon mitigation goal of planting five million trees by 2030, and to ensure that the trees planted are properly maintained. In accord with the State's tree-planting goals, the Commission will make recommendations concerning the establishment of a Maryland-based carbon offset market. It also is to review State policies that reduce and fully mitigate tree cutting for State construction and highway projects.

Authorization for the Commission ends June 30, 2024.
