Three of my bills were subject to hearings last week: The Maryland State Agency Transparency Act; the Electric Bus Transition Act; and the County Tax Fairness Act. This week, four of my bills are being heard in legislative committees: The 21st Century Economy Sales Tax Act, which was the subject of a Baltimore Sun editorial endorsement; the Summer Meals Waiver Act; the Purple Line Marketing Act; and the Firearm Dealers Safety Act.
As Chair of the Montgomery County House Delegation, I spend a lot of time working on local bills that only affect Montgomery County. The Delegation completed its work on local bills last week and the bills that were passed through the 24 member Delegation are now in the standing committees. You can read the local bills here.
The Maryland Treasurer, Nancy Kopp, recently announced that the three major bond rating agencies have renewed Maryland's AAA bond rating. The AAA bond rating is a favorable rating that allows Maryland to borrow money for construction programs at a relatively more affordable rate. You can read the reports of the agencies here.
