Charles Commissioners Now Accepting State/Local Legislative Proposals

Charles County SealThe Charles County Commissioners this week announced guidelines for the County Commissioners’ 2021 State Legislative Package. Any resident, group, or organization interested in submitting a legislative proposal or suggestion for revision or amendment to an existing state or local law must submit a written request to the Office of the County Attorney by August 14, 2020.

According to a press release:

All proposals will be published to BoardDocs and presented to the County Commissioners during a public hearing on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. Anyone submitting a proposal is asked to attend the public hearing to provide a brief synopsis of the proposal and answer any questions the Board members or public may have. If the hearing is to take place virtually, further instruction will be provided regarding virtual or call-in participation.

Thereafter, all proposals will be compiled into a preliminary legislative package and reviewed by the County Commissioners at a work session on Tuesday, September 29, 2020, where they will determine which of the proposals will be included in the County Commissioners’ 2021 State Legislative Package and forwarded to the Charles County Delegation in October.
