Welcome to the website of Delegate Marc Korman.
I was first elected in 2014 and have dedicated my time in the state legislature to ensuring economic growth and prosperity for all Marylanders. If the economy is strong, we will be able to invest and achieve many important goals which will improve our quality of life. This includes cleaning and protecting our environment, rebuilding and maintaining our infrastructure, assisting those less fortunate, and ensuring that all Marylanders have access to opportunities regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.
In Montgomery County, our economic success is built on our tremendously successful school system and our transportation network. If we continue to support and improve these assets, our potential is limitless. During my time in the legislature, I have written and supported bills ensuring adequate education funding, improving conditions for Maryland workers and enhancing the quality of public transportation.
I am excited to continue engaging in a campaign of ideas and hope you will use this website to learn my views on the important issues facing our community.
If you have additional thoughts or would like to get involved in our campaign, please contact me!
The 2020 legislative session—a session that has been unlike any other—has come to a close. As you may be aware, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was made to adjourn the legislature early for the first time since the Civil War.
Response to COVID-19
The COVID-19 global pandemic has significantly disrupted daily life in Maryland and around the world. In addition to the major public health issues, the economic implications of the necessary response to the pandemic are profound and severe.
There is a lot going on in the state legislature as we approach Monday's "crossover" deadline, the date by which legislation is supposed to pass from one chamber to the other. But the big news on the minds of many is about the coronavirus. We now have reported cases in Maryland and we all need to be calm and prepared. Be sure to monitor http://health.
A lot of the news about the legislative session you will read about from other sources are the marquee pieces of legislation such as the Blueprint for Maryland's Future; the Built to Learn Act; and the state budget. Every member of the legislature spends significant time on these bills, but we also each have our own legislative agenda we are moving forward. I am happy to report that several of my bills are working their way through the legislative process. Read more about it in the legislative update below.
The 90 day legislative session hit the halfway point at the end of last week. It was 45 days filled with bill introductions, co-sponsorship requests, bill hearings, and more. But that was the easy half. Over the next 45 days, our floor sessions will get longer, the decisions will get tougher, and we will deal with the state budget and the Blueprint for Maryland's Future on education policy and funding.
