regulations to implement a green business tax credit program in Prince George’s

legislation establishing the Green Business Tax Advisory Board, says the group
was established to help identify ways the County can attract “green” businesses
and advise regarding the implementation of the County’s green business tax
important to provide incentives and opportunities for ‘green’ businesses, and
businesses that want to go ‘green,’ to invest in Prince George’s County.
Environmentally responsible business practices will grow our economy and
create more sustainable communities so I look forward to the report and
recommendations from the Advisory Board.”
