Investing in our infrastructure means investing in our communities. We must build new infrastructure to transition to a more sustainable and eco-friendly world. Not only would it be better for the planet, but it would create countless jobs that provide a living-wage. We can bring people back to work by employing Marylanders to build these infrastructure projects and rebuild and restore equity in our middle class.
The wildlife of our islands, waterways, and beaches must be protected from pipelines, deforestation for development, and pollution. Therefore, we will not support any offshore drilling projects and will actively fight to prevent offshore drilling from damaging our shores. We will not allow a Delvarma Pipeline to happen and will not enable manufactures to pollute our waterways.
Our current infrastructure is crumbling, and we need to invest in clean technologies, and sustainable manufacturing, buildings, roads, and bridges. This not only helps us meet energy demands, but it also creates lots of high paying jobs.
The Chesapeake Bay is a national treasure and is vital for our economy and way of life.

Pair regulations with subsidies to speed up the adoption of achieving 100% clean energy by 2035 and de-carbonizing the electric sector. Switching to renewable energy sources like wind and solar energies.
Set standards for fuels and emissions and boost consumer demand for zero-emission vehicles. Create a program to replace old cars with fuel-inefficient cars and create tax credits for sustainable vehicles and infrastructure.
Link energy and pollution standards to federal support for new construction projects. Eliminate all fossil fuel use in new and renovated federal buildings to attain 100% zero-carbon pollution for all new commercial and residential buildings.
Our shores, farms, and bridges are vital to our communities. The wildlife that of our islands, waterways, and beaches must be protected from pipelines, deforestation for development, and pollution. Therefore, we will not support any offshore drilling projects and will actively fight to prevent offshore drilling from damaging our shores. We will not allow a Delvarma Pipeline and we will not enable manufactures to pollute our waterways. We must restore EPA protections such as The Methane Pollution Rule to keep our waterways and air clean.
