Calls to Action
During the session we will alert you of critical legislation that is being heard by committees and ask you to testify in favor of or in opposition to the specified bill.
FUNDING FOR THE PROTECTION & RESTORATION OF STATE LAKES IN JEOPARDY
Your help is needed now to ensure funding for the State Lakes Protection and Restoration Fund which provides resources for Maryland's 16 state-owned lakes. Four of the 16 lakes are located in Garrett County - Deep Creek Lake, New Germany Lake, Herrington Manor Lake and Savage River Reservoir. Currently, the State is not required to allocate funding for these natural resources that it owns.
The bill is being held up in the House of Delegates but with your help we believe we can get it passed.
Please contact the Speaker of the House, Mike Busch, TODAY and request his support of HB 801 to provide the necessary funding for Maryland's 16 state lakes. You can reach him by phone at 410-841-3800 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to address him as Mr. Speaker or Speaker Busch and reference the bill number
