MDU needs YOU for upcoming legislative events!

The 2021 Maryland legislative session is coming up fast and MDU is gearing up to fight for some big victories in Annapolis... but we can't do that without you! We will be asking for your help throughout the session (which begins January 13) as we lobby for MDU's key piece of legislation, our merit conversion bill, and for budgetary and other priorities. But the first step is to please join us at three crucial upcoming events to get the session started right.
