Last week, Maryland’s Republican Governor-elect Larry Hogan hinted at the direction he’ll take the state on two key environmental issues when he announced who would be in charge of two major government agencies: the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the Department of Environment (MDE).

For the secretary of the DNR, Hogan picked Charles Evans Jr., the former assistant DNR secretary under former Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich. For the MDE, Hogan chose Ben Grumbles, the former assistant administrator for water at the Environmental Protection Agency under president George W. Bush and current president of the non-profit U.S. Water Alliance.
