Legislative Leadership Changed Dramatically. Has Policy Changed Too?

    In the last few years, the Maryland General Assembly has changed drastically, following the departure of the two longest-serving presiding officers in history.

    Has policy changed too?

    And what about the political dynamic in the State House? What about the way that business is transacted in Annapolis?

    These are among the topics a distinguished panel will explore on Tuesday, March 30 at 6 p.m at a virtual fundraising webinar on behalf of Maryland Matters.

    Our panelists are Joanne Antoine, Executive Director at Common Cause Maryland; Ann Ciekot, president of the Maryland Government Relations Association; and Sen. Cory McCray, (D-Baltimore City), chair of the city’s Senate delegation in Annapolis.

    We hope you will be able to join us to discuss what has changed — and where things might go.

    We hope, too, that Maryland Matters has kept you up to date on the critical decisions being made in Annapolis and across the state. From tax credits for immigrants who use ITIN numbers to proposals to reduce disparities in education and health care. From criminal justice reform to climate change to COVID-19.
