Highway User Revenues has been a League priority for more than a decade; if adopted, MML will work to increase HUR funding for municipalities and remove the FY 2024 funding sunset.
Part of the police reform suite of legislation that passed in 2021 requires each County to have a police accountability board and establish an administrative charging committee. The law does not, however, offer municipalities the option to establish their own Accountability Board and Charging Committees, despite their municipal police departments having autonomy from their county counterparts. This year’s proposal would revise the state law relating to Police Accountability Boards and Administrative Charging Committees to give municipalities to option of creating their own Board and Committee.
This year’s Legislative Committee is led by Chair Abby McNinch, Mayor of Denton; Vice Chair Michael O’Connor, Mayor of Frederick; and Vice Chair Gregg Dotson, Councilman in North Beach. The Committee will vote on whether to adopt these recommendations at the MML Fall Conference.
