This year’s Session of the Maryland General Assembly is more than a half way concluded. With less than a month remaining, Preservation Maryland and our partners have been hard at work to get several key pieces of preservation policy passed into law.
Preservation Maryland has been working hard on two important pieces of legislation to improve our state Historic Tax Credit program. With the Maryland General Assembly in Session for just over a month more, now is a great time to contact your legislators and ask them to support historic preservation in Maryland. Here’s how:
A pro-preservation piece of state legislation in support of increased funding for the state Historic Tax Credit has been picked up by the Maryland League of Conservation Voters as part of their influential weekly list of bills that impact Maryland’s environment — helping to continue to make the connection that the greenest building is the one that is already built.
On the heels of the 2017 legislative session, considered one of the most successful legislative sessions for preservation in the past 50 years, Preservation Maryland is working on a further expansion of existing law to create an even better environment for preservation in the state.
