February Topic:
  Eyes on Annapolis: Maryland General Assembly, 2020


The 2020 session of the Maryland General Assembly convened January 8 and will end April 6. With such a brief duration and with extensive business to be done, the average Maryland resident who wants to have a voice in what laws are enacted for Maryland must take a deep breath and work hard to become a participant in the legislative process. February Discussion Groups will get some help from a Discussion Guide (attached here) that reviews the League’s legislative priorities and outlines the many ways in which League members can become more actively involved in the legislation that affects all Marylanders.

The Discussion Guide also aims to help League members understand how the legislative process works in Maryland and provides suggestions about how members can get involved during that process, even if their time is limited.LWVMC Discussion Groups in February will be lead by League members, including discussion leaders from the 7 discussion groups. Check out the info in the Discussion Guide and bring your experience to share with others at any one of the discussion groups.
