Related Policy Priorities & Anticipated Issues for 2024
- 5G, Small Cell and Broadband Expansion: We support the expansion of technology infrastructure such as 5G, small cell, and broadband to address the need for increased connectivity across all Maryland communities. Further, we support market incentives that may aid in faster deployment to more quickly address Maryland’s digital divide.
- Transportation & Infrastructure Funding: We support policies that prioritize the state’s investment in critical infrastructure projects, aiming to enhance the safe and efficient movement of people and goods. This includes addressing the state’s structural deficit, addressing the transportation needs of underserved communities, and conducting a comprehensive review to identify sustainable, long-term funding sources We will use our voice on the recently established Maryland Commission on Transportation Revenue and Infrastructure Needs to advocate for an equitable transportation funding solution.
- Vehicle Emission Reductions: Any policies aimed at meeting greenhouse gas reduction goals should take into account all the costs, both direct and indirect, associated with implementation. Further, policy decisions tied to other state standards should consider the inherent differences between states and populations.
