Md. 2nd in eco-friendly transit policies

By Washington Post editors

Maryland ranks second in the U.S. for its environmentally friendly transportation policies and investments, according to a report released Tuesday by environmental advocacy groups Smart Growth America and the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Washington Examiner reports.

The report, "Getting Back on Track: Climate Change and State Transportation Policy," released Tuesday, compared transportation systems in 50 states and their effect on gas emissions. The three states that ranked highest were California, Maryland and New Jersey. Virginia ranked 12th, receiving good scores for policies that supported commuter choices, its gas tax to fund transit investments and streets that help reduce congestion and pollution. D.C. was not included in the rankings.
