Tuesday, February 16, 2021 – 7pm
The Howard County Delegation of the Maryland General Assembly, chaired by Senator Clarence Lam and Delegate Jessica Feldmark, will hold a public hearing for citizen input on statewide issues that are being considered by the Maryland General Assembly this legislative session. This year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the hearing will be held via Zoom.
The hearing can be watched live on the Maryland General Assembly website. The live stream will be accessible through the Maryland General Assembly website home page (http://mgaleg.maryland.gov). Scroll down to Today’s Calendar. Click on the arrow next to Committee Meetings under Other, and then select Howard. Next, click on the red Live! button, which will open the streaming video on YouTube. (The Live! button will appear when the meeting goes live.)

The agenda for the hearing is attached.
The Delegation will hear oral testimony from members of the public on any statewide issue they would like to bring to the Delegation’s attention.

Signup for oral testimony will close at 11:59pm on Sunday, February 14, 2021.
