2021 Legislative Action Request

The Maryland Municipal League Invites Your Input …

√  Is there a Maryland statute that needs to be changed to enable you, as a municipal official, to do your job better?

√  Have you received citizen complaints that you could not address because you needed legislative authority?

√  Are there outdated provisions in Maryland law that need to be modernized or streamlined?

Each spring, MML solicits input from our membership to enable us to establish our legislative priority issues for the upcoming legislative session. Now is the time to submit ideas that could be improved with a legislative “fix” during the 2021 legislative session. Please note that all LARs must be approved by the governing body of the municipality, department or chapter prior to submission. 

A legislative request that is the same or substantially similar to a request that has been previously been considered and rejected by the Legislative Committee twice within a four-year period coinciding with the current General Assembly term shall be excluded from consideration by the Committee.

The Legislative Committee shall limit recommended legislative proposals to the membership for consideration at the annual fall conference to no more than four non-prioritized issues and the membership is limited to adopting no more than four legislative priorities at the fall conference.

A member municipality, chapter or department may submit up to 3 legislative requests each by completing a Legislative Action Request (LAR) and sending it to MML no later than Friday, July 24, 2020. To download the LAR form, visit mdmunicipal.org, click Legislative Advocacy and select 2021 Legislative Action Request and scan and email the form(s) to kevinc@mdmunicipal.org. Forms may also be mailed to MML at 1212 West St., Annapolis, MD 21401.
