Speak up NOW
The Maryland Department of Environment (MDE) has developed issue papers about topics that generated extensive interest when MDE, under the O'Malley administration, proposed regulations in January 2015. The issue papers include an overview of the requirements included in the 2015 proposal and MDE's tentative suggestions for revising those requirements. When MDE held three public meetings in June (MDE's PowerPoint presentation) to hear comments on the papers, it was met with an outcry.
