mixed prospect for success on our agenda

A delegation from the Progressive Working Group--Dana Beyer, Mike Tabor, Norm Oslik and I--met with legislators in Annapolis 2/10. There's mixed prospect for success on our agenda, but we learned a lot. Speaker Michael Busch generously took time to discuss our 14 point agenda, and explained at least three of our issues have a good chance of passing into law. After our discussion with the Speaker, we met with Sen. Jamie Raskin, Del. Sheila Hixson, and Del. Roger Manno. We also chatted with Del. Tom Hucker and said a quick "hi" to House Maj. Leader Kumar Barve, Del. Karen Montgomery, Del. Heather Mizeur, Del. Saqib Ali, Del. Craig Rice, Del. Kirill Reznik, Del. Jeff Waldstreicher, and other hard-working state legislators--all were on their way to meetings, hearings or conference calls. -- Mike Hersh http://www.mikehersh.com
