Check out my interview with Jill Horner from Comcast Newsmakers via our newly created Newsroom/Press Coverage page! I spoke to Jill on February 12, 2020, about bringing light rail transit to Southern Maryland and improving the safety of children who walk to school, both of which are addressed in Senate Bill 105 and Senate Bill 65, respectively. I have sponsored and testified on both bills in January 2020 before the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee.
