News Release, Charles County Public Information Office

The Charles County Commissioners have established time guidelines in the preparation for the County Commissioners’ 2021 State Legislative Package. Any citizen, group, or organization interested in submitting a legislative proposal or suggestion for revision or amendment to an existing State or Local law must submit a written request to the Office of the County Attorney at the address below by August 14, 2020:

2021 Legislative Request

Office of the County Attorney

200 Baltimore Street

La Plata, MD 20646

All proposals will be published to BoardDocs and presented to the County Commissioners during a public hearing on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020. Anyone submitting a proposal is asked to attend the public hearing to provide a brief synopsis of the proposal and answer any questions the Board members or public may have. If the hearing is to take place virtually, further instruction will be provided regarding virtual or call-in participation.

Thereafter, all proposals will be compiled into a preliminary legislative package and reviewed by the County Commissioners at a work session on Tuesday, September 29, 2020, where they will determine which of the proposals will be included in the County Commissioners’ 2021 State Legislative Package and forwarded to the Charles County Delegation in October.
