Everything old is new again! At least as it concerns legislation in Maryland, that is.
Sanctuary state laws are back, increasing the minimum wage is back, physician assisted suicide is back, ranked choice voting is back and bigger than last year.
Gov. Hogan has several bills dealing with school accountability that really need to be passed and enacted into law.
Unfortunately, the Democrats in the Legislature are more interested in blocking his popular executive order from last year making the school start date after Labor Day than they are in actually requiring accountability for the millions of dollars we spend on education every year in Maryland.
New “common sense gun laws” are proposed this year that will apply to “long guns,” i.e. hunting rifles and shotguns.
I urge my fellow Eastern Shore citizens to take the time to pay attention to what’s going on in Annapolis – most of it is not in our best interests.
You can find out all about current proposed bills by going to mgaleg.maryland.gov.
Members of the Republican Women of Worcester County (I am Legislative Committee chair) are definitely tracking legislation and urging citizen action (emails to legislators, phone calls, testimony at hearings).
I hope we can work together to defeat some of these proposed bills which will harm our way of life if passed.
