Ensuring Marylanders have access to affordable housing is always essential. But as many continue to deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, it becomes even more critical to the health and financial stability of our residents.
Today, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) and Congressman Gerry Connolly (VA-11), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Government Operations, and 11 Members of Congress sent a letter to the Chairs and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to request that the forthcoming government funding bill include language that reverses President Trump’s harmful Schedule F Executive Order.
Specifically, the Members called on Governor Hogan to issue an executive order directing the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health (MOSH) agency to develop and implement an enforceable emergency temporary standard (ETS) to prevent, contain, and mitigate community spread of COVID-19.
Today, Maryland crossed a devastating milestone and surpassed 150,000 COVID-19 cases. It is clear that this virus is aggressively spreading throughout our state, and disproportionately impacting communities of color.
Today marks the beginning of the 2021 open enrollment period, and I encourage all Marylanders to visit MarylandHealthConnection.gov as soon as possible to browse plans and find the one that works best for them.
