Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) and legislators representing Garrett, Allegany and Washington County have written to Maryland state leaders addressing the needs and opportunities for economic growth in Western Maryland. The letter, initiated by Rep. Delaney, was signed by Senator George C. Edwards (District 1), Delegate Wendell R. Beitzel (District 1A), Delegate Jason C. Buckel (District 1B), Delegate Mike McKay (District 1C) and Delegate Brett R. Wilson (District 2B).

The Western Maryland Agenda was sent to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Senate President Mike Miller and Speaker of the House Michael Busch and outlines Western Maryland legislative priorities in Annapolis. These include: improving the enterprise zone tax credit program, fully funding local transportation needs, increased promotion of Western Maryland in state tourism efforts, helping Maryland farmers, improving rural broadband access, reviewing the impact of state policies on rural communities and responsibly utilizing natural resources. 

The letter states, “we believe that significant action must be taken on behalf of the people of Western Maryland. Our paramount goal is to guarantee that a child growing up in Oakland, Frostburg or Smithsburg has the same opportunities to succeed as any other Marylander.”
