MoCo Delegation Considers MOE Waiver Bill

The Montgomery County Delegation is now considering a local bill to waive the county's Maintenance of Effort (MOE) penalty for FY 2010. Since the bill is co-sponsored by five of the county's eight Senators and seventeen of the county's twenty-four Delegates, it will almost certainly clear the two-thirds hurdle required of emergency bills like this one. Its fate in Annapolis is another question, as it must be approved by the entire General Assembly.
