Baltimore County teachers struggle, at a distance, to help students in crisis. New legislation is proposed to protect tenants and homeowners who are hurt financially by the pandemic.  Addressing Maryland’s bottlenecked unemployment system is also a top priority for state lawmakers who reconvened in Annapolis today.  And curbside recycling is finally back on track in Baltimore.

Baltimore may be getting its first major snowfall of the season Wednesday and Mayor Brandon Scott is urging residents to be prepared.

“I want to assure the city of Baltimore and our residents that snow crews are ready to respond to any winter weather that may come our way,” Scott said at a press conference Tuesday.

Scott said the city has a snow budget of $6.7 million and a snow removal program that includes 300 essential personnel, and more than 15,000 tons of salt to treat the city’s streets.
