Ready Report, March 1, 2017
There are six weeks left of the 2017 General Assembly session. Things are moving very quickly now, and I’m doing my best to impact policies across a wide spectrum.
This week promises to be to a busy one. Five of the bills I am sponsoring are scheduled for bill hearings in their respective committees. Below you can find the link to my weekly update video, details about a long-term care seminar, details on the Hampstead-Manchester Business and Community Expo, and my comments regarding Governor Hogan’s redistricting plan.
Weekly Session Video Update:
This week’s video update relays my comments on the lack of action by the Democrat controlled Legislature towards Governor Hogan’s policy agenda. Of the 31 policy proposals introduced by the Governor, not one had been voted on in as of February 20th. Most of the bills have yet to be heard in their assigned committee. This is a highly partisan plan by the Democrats to obstruct the Governor and the progress we have made in the first two years of his administration. To watch the video in its entirety, click here.
Long-Term Care Hearing
Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. will conduct a public briefing to advise Marylanders of potential policy changes regarding consumer protections for long-term care insurance. The briefing will take place on March 6th at 1pm. The event is open to the public, but I would recommend watching the live webcast of the hearing on the Administration’s Facebook page.

Hampstead-Manchester Business and Community Expo
On Saturday, March 11th, over 60 businesses, community organizations, and student groups will gather at Manchester Valley High School for the Expo. For more information, click here.
Ready’s Thoughts on Hogan Redistricting Reform Effort
One of Governor Larry Hogan’s top legislative priorities is to reform redistricting in Maryland. Maryland has the worst gerrymandered congressional districts in the country. Representative districts should be drawn by an independent commission, not the majority party in the Legislature. Hopefully within the coming days and weeks, the Maryland General Assembly will get serious about fixing this issue. My weekly update video from January 26th gives details on this.
