2011 Legislative Initiative Ideas Due by July 2
MACo is seeking legislative initiative ideas for the 2011 Session of the Maryland General Assembly. Each year MACo proposes up to four legislative initiatives for State action. Recent years’ initiatives have defended against deep and permanent budget cuts, increased the priority and stability of school construction funding, and addressed a range of policy issues affecting county governments.
MACo’s Legislative Planning Committee will consider initiative proposals. The Committee will meet throughout the Summer and Fall to develop initiatives for consideration by the full Legislative Committee. During this election year transition, the MACo Legislative Committee seated in January 2011 will formally adopt the slate of initiatives during its January meetings.
County officials are invited to submit a description of initiative ideas by Friday July 2 to MACo Executive Director Michael Sanderson at email@example.com. Please contact Michael Sanderson with any submissions or inquiries about MACo’s initiative process.
