FOLLOWING THROUGH ON THE PROMISE!

Last year the Program Open Space Transfer Tax Repayment Act passed both the Maryland House and Senate and was signed by Governor Hogan.

This legislation promised the creation of parks and playgrounds, and the protection of farms, forests and historic places for future generations to enjoy.

Thank you to everyone who signed the petition, wrote to their legislators, and helped to make this happen!

This year the Governor has submitted a budget that will fulfill those promises. Please let your legislators know that these programs are important to you!
