Kirill Reznik Report Week 2

Dear Friends,

We just wrapped up our first full week of the Legislative Session, so I’d like to share with you what’s been going on in Annapolis. Provided below is my weekly “Reznik Report” video blog, where I will discuss important happenings and issues in Annapolis:

Reznik Report Week 2

Below is some additional information I would like to share with you to keep you better informed:

1) As mentioned in the video blog, the General Assembly established a commission to study our state employee and retiree pension system. Last week, this commission released its interim report, which you can find here.

2) As we try to keep warm during another cold winter, we’re reminded that this is also a time when home heating bills tend to soar. I wanted to share with you a way that you could possibly save some money. The Maryland Home Energy Loan Program (MHELP), can help you save energy and money through implementation of energy efficient improvements recommended by an approved energy auditor. You could also obtain loans for improving insulation, sealing air ducts, installing ENERGY-star-rated heating and air-conditioning equipment, and other weatherization steps.

3) On Thursday, Jan. 27, we will conduct the annual Fallen Heroes Remembrance Day ceremony in the House of Delegates chamber. This event honors Maryland veterans who sacrificed their lives this past year. If you are serving, have served, or know someone from our district who has served as a member of our armed forces and would like to attend, please contact Suzanne White at 410-841-3332.

That's it for this week. As always if you have any questions or concerns regarding information in this e-mail or any issues affecting our state or local community please contact my office at

Del. Kirill Reznik
