How about: Tomorrow the entire Senate will be voting on The Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) SB 516. Senator Reilly voted against this bill in the Senate Finance Committee. Based on comments he has made to constituents Senator Reilly does not believe the bill will help Maryland. It’s true, that as of today most of our clean energy sources come from out of state. BUT, the clean energy jobs act will significantly increase the state’s clean energy carve out and pave the way for 25,000 new clean energy jobs in Maryland. A vote against SB516 is a vote against jobs! Call Reilly, Edward R., before the vote tomorrow!!
Call Senator Reilly. 410-841-3568
