Unemployment Insurance

My office along with all of Team 32 have been working hard to make sure District 32 residents get the unemployment insurance benefits they are entitled to. We know that It has been a long and difficult process and many people still have not received the help they need.  My office continues to assist those who are unable to get through to a representative at the Department of Labor.  Please fill out this form HERE if you require assistance or if you are continuing to have difficulties.  Please provide updated information and we will pass it along to the Division of Unemployment Insurance.














I hope you can read this very well researched article from the Washington Post about the Maglev. It is time for the people that live in District 32 to pay attention to this issue. The last day for comments to the FRA is April 22.

News from Annapolis!

It is hard to believe that there are only 18 days remaining of the 2021 General Assembly Session.  Much work remains to be done, the legislative process is truly a marathon, not a sprint. This past Monday, March 22nd, was “Crossover Day” here in Annapolis. After committee hearings and careful deliberation in the Senate, most legislation that has a chance at becoming law has crossed over to the House of Delegates for consideration.

Maryland, My Maryland Repeal

On March 19th, SB 8, General Provisions – State Song Repeal, was passed out of the Senate by a vote 45-0. Currently SB8 is on 3rd reader in the House and the crossfile, HB667 in now in the Senate, when this legislation passes and is signed by the Governor, Maryland My Maryland will be repealed.  Making Maryland and New Jersey the only States without a State Song.

Legislation to do away with the State Song has been introduced several times in the last 50 years and some of you may remember my bill in 2009 to update the Confederate sympathizing lyrics. Until now they have never received the support necessary to pass either the House of Delegates or the Senate. In 2009, I brought 50 fourth graders from Glen Burnie Park Elementary School to Annapolis to advocate for this legislation and present their suggested new song lyrics. I was proud to sponsor legislation then and I am proud to support SB 8 this Legislative Session. It’s time for change!

District Night - Thank You!












Thank you to everyone who was able to join us last night for our first ever Virtual District Night! We had a great turnout with over 50 constituents. Congressman Sarbanes and representatives for Senator Van Hollen and Cardin joined to talk about the American Rescue Plan. County Executive Pittman and Councilmembers Lacey, Pickard and Pruski went over local zoning and county priorities and Delegate Sandy Bartlett, Ned Carey, Mark Chang, Mike Rogers and I spoke about the work of the General Assembly this session. If you could not make it last night you can still watch the recording on my Facebook page.

Senator Cardin’s office provided a helpful resource guide highlighting where the federal COVID relief is going in Maryland. You can read it here.

MAGLEV Public Hearing

I have been opposing MAGLEV since 2004 when it was first proposed. This project will drastically impact the lives of Anne Arundel County residents. Additionally, the price tag is especially concerning as our State faces the ongoing public health issues caused by COVID-19. I am working with local groups to educate people on why it is not a good idea. There are many outstanding questions surrounding cost, environmental impact, access, the ultimate path’s effect on land owned by various entities.

The public comment period for the environmental review of the MAGLEV project has been extended to May 24, 2021. This is a great opportunity to voice your opposition to the MAGLEV. The decision is Federal, the Federal Railroad Administration, so we all need to to comment.

There will be six virtual public hearings as part of the environmental review of the project. You can register here:
