Legislative Priorities

Supporting Maryland’s 157 Cities & Towns

The Maryland Municipal League represents municipal interests by actively supporting legislation that assists municipal governments and by opposing legislation that negatively impacts Maryland’s 157 cities and towns. MML also works year-round to educate state officials about the needs of Maryland's cities and towns.

In addition to being a voice for statewide municipal legislation, MML staff research all bills affecting municipalities and publish a weekly bulletin during the Maryland General Assembly session to inform municipal officials of developments at the state level so that they have the information needed to participate directly in the formulation of state laws and policies.

Annual Priorities

Each year, the membership of the Maryland Municipal League has the opportunity to choose priority issues that directly affect Maryland’s cities and towns. The League then works with the Maryland General Assembly to move these issues through the legislative process.
