Senate Maintenance of Effort Bill Hearings Postponed

A revision to the General Assembly’s hearing schedule has postponed the hearings on SB 848 and SB 851, two bills dealing with the process and penalties arising from county budgets below the maintenance of effort level.

MACo has taken a position to support SB 851 (waiving penalties for FY 2013 funding), and to support SB 848 with amendments.

The bill hearings will likely be rescheduled in the coming days, for another time in the next two to three weeks.
