2023 Legislative Review

This was a year of new beginnings in Annapolis: we inaugurated Wes Moore as Maryland’s 63rd Governor and welcomed an entirely new administration, as well as scores of new State Senators and Delegates within the General Assembly. This was also our staff's first time back fully in-person during the legislative session, though we held legislative leadership accountable to keeping a hybrid option in place so the public could remotely participate in legislative proceedings throughout the full 90-days.

How to turn regular Marylanders into accountability watchdogs

"Our lawmakers missed a tremendous opportunity this session when they voted no on this bill."


2023 Legislative Priorities

As we transition into a legislative session with an entirely new administration and General Assembly, Common Cause Maryland will continue advocating for reforms aimed at building a more equitable and inclusive democracy. Though many bills introduced this year aim to improve how our democracy functions, the bills below are our priorities for the 90-day session. These proposals will help ensure that all Marylanders can observe and meaningfully participate in the legislative process.
