The Maryland General Assembly’s special session has adjourned, with the Governor’s congressional redistricting plan approved by both chambers. While no action was taken on issues of importance to the business community, there were hearings held on transportation infrastructure needs, economic development and job creation.
The Maryland Chamber is happy to see state leaders focused on job creation. We are also grateful that the General Assembly did not act on these important matters during the confines of a special session. We look forward to discussing these issues in greater detail when the legislature convenes its 2012 session in January.
The Maryland Chamber will continue to monitor these critical issues during the interim and provide you with updates here on the Chamber Action Network blog. We are committed to helping make Maryland more competitive, and the we appreciate the ongoing work of our outstanding member volunteers as we prepare our 2012 Business Agenda.
Please mark your calendars and plan to attend Business Day in Annapolis on January 19, 2012, so that you and your colleagues can meet with your legislators in their offices – a powerful opportunity to present your company’s case for helping to retain and create jobs in Maryland. We will provide an orientation that morning to make it easy for you to make those visits. More information will be available soon.
