by Capital News Service | January 14, 2016 | General Assembly | 0 |
Amid a sea of Maryland state-flag neckties and toddlers in suits, legislators of the Maryland General Assembly were gaveled in for the first day of the 2016 session.

Reps. Donna Edwards and Chris Van Hollen have tried hard to draw distinctions between themselves in the race for U.S. Senate, but Edwards conceded, “We have very, very similar voting records.” “The question is what kind of fighter do you want in the U.S. Senate,” Edwards said, linking herself to Mikulski’s feisty reputation in which “fighting” for something was a staple of many press releases. “You want someone in the Senate who is fearless to take them on.”Read More

New farm bill would aid more Md. farmers, but hurt food stamp recipients
by Len Lazarick | September 12, 2012 | News | 7 |
With the U.S. Farm Bill of 2008 about to expire Sept. 30, advocates from Maryland and across the nation are pressuring Congress to quickly pass the 2012 bill that would end the subsidies for big corporate farms before Congress breaks for the election. But Maryland lawmakers are not hopeful it will make that deadline. Both the Senate and the House bills spell the end for Direct Payment subsidies in favor of crop insurance programs. The gridlock stems from disagreement over cuts to the food stamp program.Read More
