Director of Government Relations Elly Colmers Cowan penned the op-ed Viewpoint: Maryland is falling behind in funding historic preservation tax incentives, featured in today’s Baltimore Business Journal.
The 444th session of the Maryland General Assembly begins today. This session still may not look like those of years past due to Covid-19 precautions, Preservation Maryland remains ready to be the voice of historic preservation in Annapolis. We are hitting the ground running with a full slate of priorities in support of historic tax credits, community revitalization, preservation funding, and smart growth.
A week before the start of the 2022 session of the Maryland General Assembly, Preservation Maryland, in partnership with Cross Street Partners, co-hosted a legislative preview and conversation with Senator Cory McCray of Baltimore City and House Majority Leader Eric Luedtke of Montgomery County about what’s in store for the state Historic Revitalization Tax Credit during the upcoming session of the Maryland General Assembly. Preservation professionals from across the state joined to learn about legislation that is poised to make major investments in the Historic Tax Credit from its sponsors, as well as the best strategies for advocating to ensure its passage.
