The legislative session for the General Assembly begins today in Annapolis. Legislators will be faced with a number of issues, as well as the challenge of passing a balanced budget. If you still are not sure which legislators represent you, you can find out by entering your address on Capwiz or by using the Who Are My Elected Officials? web site.
Each year during the legislative session, the Maryland Library community organizes and participates in Maryland Library Legislative Day. The day is a concentrated advocacy effort, including visits with legislators in Annapolis and virtual advocacy using Capwiz. This annual event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 13th. For information about last year’s event, visit the Legislative Panel blog post.
