Maryland is moving forward with a proposed highway expansion project after a disappointing vote from the Board of Public Works, a project that Maryland PIRG has advocated against. Expanding the highway, which research shows will likely exacerbate traffic congestion rather than alleviate it, will harm the environment and public health.
Maryland is making big strides toward a fairer, more accessible democracy. In May, several bipartisan, Maryland PIRG-backed bills went into law to increase access to early voting, improve the state’s mail-in voting system, and reduce the influence of corporate interests in our elections via a public campaign financing program.
