How green are your legislators?

The answer is: very green.

On all the big issues, they vote green.

And Jim, Joseline, and Ben don't just vote green. They lead successful fights for our environment

Jim has sponsored the state's nationally-recognized stormwater management law and chaired the Senate Environment Subcommittee. 

Joseline has been a leader on public health, including removing harmful chemicals and toxins from infant formula and children's toys. 

Ben led the fight against climate change in Annapolis. He was the original lead sponsor of legislation increasing our renewable energy requirements -- making Maryland a leader in the nation on combating this existential threat to our planet. 

This year, before they tell you what they want to do, ask them what they've done. 

For our environment, your legislators have done a lot!
