Carroll’s Howard Eyes Legislative Changes

Recent coverage in the Baltimore Sun (limited free views available) highlights a wide-raging series of legislative “fixes” sought by Carroll County Commissioners President Doug Howard.

From the article:

Carroll County Commissioners President Doug Howard announced Monday that he will propose legislation tackling two of the most talked about issues in Carroll: the state mandated stormwater fee and the Common Core State Standards.

At his town hall meeting, Howard said he will ask the Board of Carroll County Commissioners to request statewide legislation during the 2014 General Assembly that includes exempting counties from implementing the stormwater fee under certain circumstances and withdrawing Maryland school systems from the Common Core.

County Commissioners are scheduled to discuss their legislative proposals for the county delegation Nov. 26.

For full coverage of the numerous proposals Howard is pursuing for legislative action, read the Sun‘s full online coverage.
