Special Session 2021: Fair Congressional Lines/Equal Representation and Veto Overrides
It has been officially announced that the Maryland General Assembly will have a Special Session from 6-10 December.

This Special Session will have a major lasting impact on Marylanders and as such, I would like to share what it is and how it will impact you.
