A Dramatic Shift In Maryland’s Legislature
The Maryland General Assembly convenes on Wednesday with new leaders in both chambers and several committees. In the House, Del. Adrienne Jones is the first black speaker, and the first female. The Senate is set to elect Bill Ferguson its president. Both say their priorities are building new schools and re-shaping how teaching is done.
Correction: The General Assembly will enter its 441st, not 440th, legislative session on Wednesday.
