Markell appointed to White House task force on climate change

Governor Markell is appointed to the White House Task Force on Climate Preparedness.

President Obama appointed Markell to the panel Friday while he was in already Washington, D.C. for a workforce development forum.

Markell says the issue of climate change hits close to home for him because Delaware is one of the lowest-lying states in the nation, making it increasingly vulnerable to global warming.

Markell says he's honored by the appointment.
