Greetings Neighbors and Friends,
I want to thank you for your support and feedback about important legislative issues during the 2016 legislative session.  Many of you received my End-Of-Session Reportthrough the mail; however, for those of you that did not, I wanted to make sure that I shared some important information with you.
Together, we've accomplished much for District 26, as well as the county and state.  As we close the 436th legislative session we passed a $42-billion dollar budget, which includes funding for public schools, public safety, the health care system and resources for substance abuse treatment and opioid addiction. 
As it relates to Prince George's County, I was able to work with my colleagues to bring back:  $27.5-million in capital funds for Prince George's County Hospital Center, $15-million to the Prince George's County Regional Medical Center (Senate Bill 324), over $1-billion in direct education aid, $7.2-million for our public libraries, $28.5-million to community college funding, a $30-million disparity grant, and much more.
In addition, I worked hard to address a number of issues from domestic violence prevention, funding for those with developmental disabilities, clean energy, tax relief and "equal pay for equal work".  In a very competitive environment where money is scarce, I was able to bring back money for a number of community projects in our district.
