2016 Maryland General Assembly

Now that the 2016 legislative session is over, it is time to prepare for 2017's agenda and address important issues to consider for the 2017 Maryland General Assembly.  

The GBBCC will be looking at HB457, the state property tax filing fee reduction bill.  This bill did not make it out of the Economic Matters Committee in the 2016 legislative session.  

If Passed this bill would have reduced the filing fee in $50 increments until the fee was reduced to $100.  

This bill would obviously be of great value to small and minority businesses.

The Chamber's Legislative/Public Policy Committee is studying this bill and we are planning to organize to support this bill during the 2017 Maryland General Assembly.

Join us in Annapolis this year as we come together to support this legislation.  Please contact the Chamber with your concerns, events, or ideas. 

Debra Keller-Greene, Board Chair
