Be careful to ensure the separation of duties. Conflicts when Secretaries of State Agencies chair commissions.

Maryland "sunshine laws" not enforced. Intended to shine light on commission/council meetings, etc.

MD Health in All Policies (MD HiAP 2017-2019) followed a similar model as the WA example.

In Delaware where I served as Secretary of the environmental agency (early 2000), we called the body the Community Involvement Advisory Committee. Half of all penalties collected for environmental violations went into a fund. Communities could apply for grants to help support environmental issues in their community.

How to assure that recommendations from such commissions are received by legislature and translated into policy?
Claire Miller
52:56
For the states where EJ Bodies influenced state policies, were you able to find specific state policies that could serve as examples for Maryland?
Veronika Carella
54:00
How do we get State agencies to respond to state-mandated commissions such as CEJSC and CEHPAC?
Charlie Goedeke
55:08
Is enforcement of sunshine laws something we need to work on?.
Nick DiPasquale
55:18
Did any state EJ Advisory Committees have responsibility for reviewing or conducting cumulative impact assessments?

sorry issues connecting

yes please share any notes from that presentation! thanks!
Veronika Carella
01:06:50
Why can't we just ask CEJSC an CEHPAC to request that 1973's MEPA regulations be written. That is part of their statute to ensure that laws, regulations exist?
Veronika Carella
01:10:16
If asked, CEJSC and CEHPAC must act...
Denisse Guitarra
01:11:28
so how did the EJ committees work with EJ communities/leaders?
