Legislative Update

10 Apr 2017 6:29 PM | Deleted user

Nine PBA members on March 29th met in Annapolis with Sen. Simonaire, and Delegates Nic Kipke and Meagan Simonaire. We discussed current bills and also provided PBA input on bills that was considered helpful to the Anne Arundel County Delegation. We spent time discussing the Family Sick Leave Bill that at the time of our meeting was passed by both the House and Senate and was in Reconciliation to work out differences in the bills. We learned on April 5th that the reconciled bill was passed and will now be sent to Governor Hogan for his signature. Governor Hogan has said he will veto this bill. The Maryland Assembly is set to override Governor Hogan’s veto to make ensure this law passes.

We need to act now. Download our Sample Letter for text you can use to email the following legislators:
