Leggett Spells Out Montgomery County Priorities for the Upcoming Session of the Maryland General Assembly

County Executive Ike Leggett released Montgomery County’s priorities for the session of the Maryland General Assembly due to convene in Annapolis on January 13, 2016.

Highlights of County priorities include increased State funding for school construction, transit, and roads, and support for ongoing County economic development and job initiatives. Both the County Executive and the County Council are opposed to any legislation that would privatize local liquor control – which would undermine public health, stretch thin County law enforcement, and cost County taxpayers more than $30 million a year.
