After months of uncertainty, I am pleased that today, Mayor Rawlings-Blake announced that the Charm City Circulator will remain intact. The Charm City Circulator offers an important transit option for people around District 46, and represents what reliable, clean, and safe public transit looks like in Baltimore. We must work together to ensure that the Charm City Circulator remains an option for Baltimore residents, and I will continue to work with my state and City colleagues - as well as community members - to identify funding opportunities to keep the Circulator on the road. 

See the Mayor's statement below:

On August 31, the Governor stood with the Comptroller and announced that beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, no school would be able to start prior to Labor Day, and all schools must end by June 15. I disagree strongly with this action, and believe it is moving away from where we should be going - year-round school. Not only will this action not help our state – it will hurt our most vulnerable families and create additional barriers to success for many working parents. In fact, so few school districts think it's a good idea that only one school district in the entire state does it right now - Worcester County, where Ocean City is located. And, in other nearby areas like D.C., public schools are moving to year-round schedules.

What a week! After spending 5 days in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention, I am exhausted but enthusiastic and wanted to drop you a quick note. It was an incredibly humbling experience to be able to represent Maryland as a convention delegate for Hillary Clinton. Maryland was well-represented on the national stage, as well - Rep. Elijah Cummings, Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Mayor Rawlings-Blake, and former Governor Martin O’Malley all spoke to the Convention (and even Nancy Pelosi gave a shout-out to her home state of Maryland)!

Two years have come and gone so fast. Two years ago today, the polls had just opened and I was standing at William Paca Elementary School greeting voters. Today, I’ll be starting my day at Maree Farring Elementary/Middle School in Brooklyn, talking with the principal and others about expanding its capacity to make room for more students who want to attend this thriving school.

Today, the Governor dealt another blow to public transportation in the Baltimore region when he vetoed a bill to create an oversight and planning board (HB 1010).  I am very disappointed and frustrated by the Governor’s decision to veto a bill that would make structural reforms to public involvement, oversight, and planning at MTA.

My time in Annapolis for the year is drawing to a close, but I wanted to send a short email this week before I send you my final End of Session report next week. It was a big week in Annapolis and Baltimore - and a great day at Camden Yards yesterday! It's always good to start the season in the W column. #LetsGoOs

We have now passed both FY2017 budgets - the Operating Budget and the Capital Budget. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I spent most of session working on both of these important documents. Passing a budget every year is the General Assembly's only constitutional duty - and so I'm pleased to say that this year we even finished early!

I've included links to two one-pagers below on the budgets. You can also find all the budget documents and individual Agency budget analyses at the General Assembly website here
