Session Week Beginning March 16, 2020
With the General Assembly planning to adjourn on Wednesday (and planning to reconvene in May), the budget must be passed, and lawmakers are scrambling to push through several priority bills. In addition, public hearings have been cancelled due to the pandemic, and the only hearings that will be held on bills crossing over from the other house will be for those that were not cross-filed.
UULM-MD has no more priority bills scheduled for hearings, and the only ones related to our priorities will be heard March 16. Voting on bills can occur anytime, so we are asking members to contact their Senators and Delegates on key committees to support priority bills. The following bills are scheduled for committee hearings this week. Please see the Issue Task Forces for further information on these bills and their plans for testimony.
Monday, March 16, 2020
Senate Finance Committee - 10:00 am
All of these bills are listed in the table Current Status of Priority Legislation, along with descriptions (scroll right).
All bill hearings that have have been scheduled so far are posted in the calendar below and highlighed under The Latest. In addition, some of our coalition partners have scheduled their advocacy days in Annapolis, so feel free to join them if you wish. Please check the calendar below for dates and times.
Using the Teamup Calendar:
