The MD General Assembly will convene for the 2018 Session in a little less than a month, on January 10th.  By the time that sine die rolls around in April, lawmakers will have considered hundreds of bills, and will have jockeyed for position on any number of important bills that will compete for the attention of their fellow legislators, leadership and their constituents. 

The Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland will be rolling out their priority agenda for the upcoming Maryland General Assembly session, reviewing policy and pushing for legislation that will champion issues impacting black communities in Baltimore and across the state.  

Today, we are joined in studio by three of 51 members of the MD Legislative Black Caucus, who represent the Baltimore area. 

Del. Cheryl Glenn is the chair of the caucus.  She represents the 45th District, here in Baltimore City.  

Del. Curt Anderson serves as Chair of the Baltimore City House Delegation.  Representative of the 43rd Legislative District. 

And Del. Benjamin Brooks, Sr. joins us as well.  He represents the 10th district in Baltimore County.  He was elected in 2015.  He also serves as a Deputy Majority Whip, and a member of the Economic Matters Committee.
