During its 2015 session, the Maryland General Assembly codified the MCCC into law, officially charging the Commission on Climate Change with advising the Governor and General Assembly "on ways to mitigate the causes of, prepare for, and adapt to the consequences of climate change." The MCCC is chaired by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) Secretary Ben Grumbles and consists of members representing state agencies and the legislature, local government, business, environmental non-profit organizations, organized labor, philanthropic interests, and the State University system.
