December Special Session of the General Assembly Announced:
I wanted to make you aware of the upcoming Special Session to be held December 6-15th for the purpose of passing a new congressional legislative map. The Maryland General Assembly will consider two maps, one presented by the Citizens Redistricting Committee and one by the Legislative Districting Committee. Maps have been proposed by the Citizens Committee (see below) but we have yet to see a draft from the Democratic led Legislative Committee. Maryland State Senate and Delegation maps will be considered during the regular Session, beginning Wednesday, January 12th, 2022.
Maryland Citizens Redistricting Committee (State Legislative and Congressional):
The final round of public meetings concluded on Wednesday, October 16th. The Final Commission Meeting Recap of Events will be held on Wednesday, November 3rd at 6 PM. For a look at the proposed maps, the most up to date information and schedule, visit Maryland Citizens Redistricting Commission.

The Carroll County Delegation will hold their annual public hearing on proposed county legislation on Wednesday, November 17th at 6:00 pm. The hearing will take place in the Reagan Room of the County Office Building , 225 North Center Street, Westminster, MD.
The Delegation will be discussing possible Carroll County-specific bill requests for the 2022 Maryland General Assembly Legislative Session.

New State Funding Secured for Carroll Community College:
On Wednesday, October 20, 2021, the Board of Public Works approved a grant for Carroll Community College for $227,000 to replace heating and cooling equipment, and the college's fire alarm system. This funding will supplement needed repairs in the Great Hall and in areas of the campus that connect and wrap around the buildings in particular.
