Today I had an opportunity to interview Delegate Vanessa Atterbeary (District 13) to discuss some of the proposed legislation coming from the Howard County Delegation for the 2021 General Session. The two items for discussion today were proposed legislation about SROs and the prohibition of the Fee–in–Lieu of Moderate-Income Housing Units. Here is that interview:

Here are some additional details as published up to this point:
