Session 2016 is underway!

Posted by admin January13, 2016

The 436th legislative session is now underway. As Majority Leader it is my job to guide the members as we work to strengthen the state’s economic outlook, to create and preserve jobs, invest in education and continue to maintain our high quality of life here in Maryland.

We have many new and some familiar challenges ahead of us. I will continue to promote our shared values in Annapolis, to make our schools, roads and environment a top priority and to do all that I can to help you navigate our State’s services.

Maryland’s schools remain nation-leading. As chair of the influential Education Subcommittee I will continue to strive to make our K-12 system accessible to all kids.

If you have any suggestions during the session, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

2015 Session Has Ended

Posted by admin May1, 2015

The 435th session of the Maryland General Assembly adjourned recently. During the 90 day session we worked hard to protect our investments in education, our roads and the Chesapeake Bay: we managed all of that without any new taxes.

We followed the advice of the Augustine Commission and put into place bipartisan measures to help bring businesses to Maryland; as well as updating and refreshing our more-than-decade old charter school law. We doubled our commitment to our veterans through a new tax deduction and dedicating a day to honoring those who served during the Vietnam War.

As we move towards next session, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have ideas or need help getting access to government services.
