Bay Bridge Safety Legislation in Trouble
Senator EJ Pipkin has sponsored a bill SB458, which would codify best practices for the Maryland Department of Transportation to adopt for its safety inspections of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
The bill passed the Senate 47-0. However, Delegate James Malone, vice chair of the House Environmental Matters Committee is holding up the bill in that committee.
Time is of the essence, the end of the legislative session “sine die” is midnight Tuesday morning.
Please call Malone’s office (410) 841-3378 or firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know you want this bill brought to the full House for a vote.
