Environmental Entrepreneurs, a national group that promotes green energy through businesses and jobs, ranked the state in its latest report.

Maryland was noted for a $2.6 billion, 20-station and 14-mile expansion of the Baltimore light-rail system. The state-funded project is designed to reduce carbon pollution and traffic and produce more than 42,000 construction jobs through 2021.
