‘HB-106 - The Repeal of The Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Act of 2012 (SB - 236) - Recieves a Hearing Date’
(ANNAPOLIS) -- Today it was announced that HB-106, entiled ‘Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Preservation Act of 2012 - Repeal’, will be heard in the Environmental Matters Committee on February 6th, at 1:00 p.m. “Let’s get as many people as possible to come out to Annapolis to testify in favor of this bill. We need to show the Environmental Matters Committee the negative impact this bill has on the people of Maryland and their property rights” stated Delegate Mike McDermott (R- District 38B) in response to the hearing date.
“Last year, the General Assembly took away decision making authority from our local governments under SB-236. In the name of ‘preservation’, they gave us restrictions, and in the name of ‘planning’, they have now taken control. Currently, many local governments are waiting and hoping that some relief will come during the 2013 Session, and I am hoping to do just that with the Repeal of SB- 236” stated Delegate McDermott.
