2016 Legislative Update

Dear Friend,
Thank you for visiting my website and looking at my update regarding the outcome of several key pieces of legislation this session. I believe that your input and interest in the legislative session is the mechanism that keeps government in check.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be. If we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every American to be informed.”
In that spirit, I am hopeful that the following summary is helpful to you regarding what happened in Annapolis over the last 90 days. Please do not feel the need to read the whole letter, but go to the section(s) that most interest you and pass along the information to others who might benefit from the letter.
In the 436th session of the Maryland General Assembly, 2,817 bills were introduced and 834 passed both houses. Four of my bills were passed this year. In addition, four of my other bills that did not pass made positive changes in the state. Two bills resulted in summer studies to solve the issues the bill brought up, and two other bills resulted in actions that made the changes my bills were seeking, without needing to be enacted.
Please note that the starred bills (*) are bills that I introduced. You can learn more about those bills and other bills that I introduced by visiting http://delegateneilparrott.org/legislation/ where you can find PowerPoint presentations that provide greater detail regarding many of my bills.
It is an honor to serve you in the Maryland General Assembly. If you have any questions, or if I can be of service to you in the future, please contact me by email at neil.parrott@house.state.md.us or by phone at (301)660-4263.
Sincerely,
Neil C. Parrott
Maryland House of Delegates, District 2A

Lloyd Waters: Del. Neil Parrott is a political pit bull

I would like to tell you why I respect some of the characteristics of Neil Parrott, a man I have never met. First, he seems to be a family man concerned about the institution of the family and the future of his children. Although his efforts to protect his children in the library setting would… Continue Reading

People are hurting all across the country.  Recently, as I was leaving Sam’s Club, I spoke to a retired couple whose health insurance had just been canceled due to Obamacare.  Now they are having major troubles trying to get new coverage. Elections have consequences, and every day people are starting to feel the consequences in… Continue Reading
