From the Office of Del. Mary-Dulany James:
I hope this email finds you all well. There are some exciting developments happening down in Annapolis, and I’d like to share some of them with you now.
New Coalition: Tired of feeling like you don’t have a home on either the right or the left? Or that thoughtful voices can’t be heard over the partisan rancor at the extremes? There are a considerable number of lawmakers who agree, and are dedicated to effectively managing the fiscal matters of the state and growing the economy regardless of partisan politics.
Septic Systems: The divine beauty of the Chesapeake is a state treasure. The upkeep of the bay is therefore an issue of spectacular importance. The state already has in place many protections for the bay, but with 4-6 percent of Maryland’s pollution in the Bay coming from septic runoff, one would think that a bill which was introduced last year tackling this issue would be well received, right?
Transportation Funding: Roaring to life like a supped-up Ferrari, an increase in the gas tax has gained much attention as a possible way to fill our funding gap and bring some much needed money back into transportation infrastructure projects and maintenance.
Public-Private Partnerships (P3): I am cosponsoring a bill that is the product of a report that the General Assembly commissioned last year to reduce the costs to the state of major capital projects, while still promoting economic development by having these projects go forward creating jobs and the positive ripple effect into the economy.
As always, I am here to serve you, my constituents. If you have any questions on these or any other topics, please let me know. I am blessed to be given the opportunity to represent you in Annapolis. If you have any concerns about what happens at the state capitol, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Very truly yours,
