Shortly after the conclusion of the General Assembly session, MML solicits input from our membership to enable us to establish our legislative priority issues for the next 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 Legislative Action Requests (LARs) must be approved by the governing body at a public meeting and signed by an officer 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 2021 MML Legislative Action Request (LAR) form, complete the form and then scan and email the approved and signed form(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms may also be mailed to MML at 1212 West Street, Annapolis, MD 21401.
