The Maryland Senate is preparing to re-open for in-person testimony next week, the first time in nearly two full years for that direct interaction from stakeholders. With coronavirus caseloads on the decline, and safety measures in place, the Senate will make the switch effective February 14 and will alter its testimony submission and signup procedures as well. The House of Delegates has yet to indicate any comparable move and will continue remote delivery, setting up in-town participation as a “hybrid” experience for stakeholders. Conduit Street has your coverage, with all the notes on the new Senate protocols and some “talk of the town” perspective leading off this week’s Conduit Street Podcast.
Conduit Street Podcast

On the latest episode of the Conduit Street Podcast, Kevin Kinnally and Michael Sanderson discuss the latest news and notes from Annapolis, including the Senate's plan to resume in-person committee hearings next week, why billions in federal infrastructure funding may play a big role in this year's budget deliberations, and a push to allow Maryland voters to take and publish "ballot selfies" at the polling place.

The Conduit Street Podcast is available on major platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and online.
