2021 Special Session

In December, 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 or consider any bills. They will only take up legislation to redraw congressional districts based on the 2020 U.S. Census data.
