On January 13, 2021, the Maryland General Assembly will convene for a legislative session that promises to be unlike any other in history. Legislative leaders have already announced their plans to execute their constitutional responsibilities for the full 90 days of session but doing so in a way that preserves public health will require a number of logistical and procedural adjustments. In addition, we know that the legislature will consider many policies and initiatives in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that will have a direct impact on Maryland’s job creators.
The Maryland Chamber of Commerce’s Meet the State event is the premier, early-session gathering of legislative and state government leaders. Being held virtually for the first time, the two-hour session will bring together policymakers and business representatives to discuss critically important public health and economic issues as we work to overcome the pandemic and remain on the road to recovery.
This year’s event will feature:
Now more than ever, it is critically important that policymakers hear from Maryland’s job creators so that actions taken to address the challenges posed by the pandemic appropriately balance public health and safety with economic realities and consequences.
During a session that will provide limited opportunities for in-person interaction with your elected officials, you do not want to miss your chance to hear from and weigh in with them directly.
