2022 Legislative Session

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, most of the session was viewable to the public through remote, web-based access. Details of the procedural rules and regulations can be seen below.

 


2021 Special Session

On December 6th, the Maryland State Legislature will convene a special session to redraw our state’s congressional boundaries based on the 2020 U.S. Census data. They will also consider overriding the vetoes on a number of important bills, as well as elect a new State Treasurer. The State Treasurer sits on the state employee and teacher pension board, and represents one vote on the three-member Board of Public Works, which deliberates on state procurement and budgetary items when the legislature is not in session.

Redistricting: Redrawing Congressional and Legislative Districts

Beginning on Dec 6th,the Maryland State Legislature will convene a special session to redraw our state’s congressional boundaries. The special session is different from the January-to-April regular legislative session: the state legislature will not hear testimony on the budget, but will instead only take up legislation to redraw congressional districts based on the 2020 U.S. Census data, consider overriding more than 20 bills vetoed by the Governor last Spring, and elect a new State Treasurer.
