First week of General Assembly session is in the books

Annapolis, MD - The first week of the 2018 Maryland's General Assembly Session is now in the books. I'm honored to be in Annapolis representing you. After a very nice speech on Wednesday from Speaker Mike Busch about getting along and working together for all of Maryland, the Democrats quickly overturned two vetoes from Governor Hogan.

2017 HB 1 Labor And Employment/Maryland Healthy Working Families Act -This act does not cover unions or the construction industry - thus covering less than half the number of employee in Maryland. Combined with the rising minimum wage, this act will increase the cost of labor in business, force some business from expanding to 15 or more employees, and even encourage businesses to leave the state for less intrusive government regulations. Delegate Chris Adams gives the best argument against this bill and the reason the Governor's veto should be upheld. Click here to hear his floor speech. NOTE: Governor Hogan has introduced HB 98 Paid Leave Compromise Act of 2018 to fix the problems with the previous bill.

2017 HB 694 Higher Education/Admissions Process, Criminal History (Maryland Fair Access To Education Act Of 2017) - This act prohibits higher education institutions from using criminal history on admission forms thus allowing for violent felons to walk campus grounds. This combined with the Democrat effort to keep law-abiding citizens from carrying a firearm on campus will make our institutions less safe. Institutions will find a work around to obtain the information
Finally it is not too late to participate in the 2017 Constituent Survey. Click here and give me your feedback! If I or my office can assist you, please do not hesitate to contact us at 301-858-3227.
