From Harford County government:
Statement from Harford County Executive Barry Glassman on Senate Bill 908
Harford County Executive Barry Glassman issued the following statement today on Maryland Senate Bill 908:
“Senate Bill 908 politicizes an already complex funding scheme to get local transportation projects in the Consolidated Transportation Plan for Maryland counties. It could also further delay funding and make it less predictable as projects go through a commission, all of which impedes efforts to address our long term transportation needs.”
