Great news for Maryland!
The Program Open Space – Transfer Tax Repayment Act has passed both the House and the Senate, and Governor Hogan has signed the bill. This will mean 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! We’re very grateful to Governor Hogan, the General Assembly and in particular Delegate Barbara Frush, Delegate Tawanna Gaines, Senator Nancy King, Delegate Maggie McIntosh, and Senator Thomas “Mac” Middleton.
A copy of the bill as it passed both houses can be found here: http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/2016RS/bills/hb/hb0462e.pdf.
