Today was a truly proud day for me personally as I witnessed the signing into law of my three House Bills from the 2014 Maryland General Assembly’s legislative session. These bills will make a difference in the lives of foster parents, senior citizens, and everyone who must pay for copies of their medical records. These bills are:
HB 399 – Makes medical records affordable for Marylanders in order to receive medical care.
HB 699 – Creates an income tax subtraction for foster parents to defray the out-of-pocket expenses that are necessary to care for their foster children.
HB 932 – Provides a property tax credit for senior citizens who receive Social Security.
These bills will each make citizens’ lives better, the true purpose of our government process. It is days like this that fuel my energy and pleasure in public service.
