Working with State Partners
During the upcoming legislative session of the Maryland General Assembly, County Executive Ball will work with the county’s state partners on the following legislative initiatives that will be introduced by Delegate-elect Courtney Watson and cosponsored by Senator-elect Katie Fry Hester:
HB 428/SB 269: Funding to recapitalize Maryland’s Comprehensive Flood Management Grant Program to provide ongoing state funding for flood mitigation projects in Ellicott City and other towns affected by flooding.
The county executive is also pursuing local legislation to allow for greater access to private property in order to clear the county’s waterways. That legislation will be pre-filed this month.
