The Annapolis Report: A Review of the 2015 Legislative Session
Viewing this year’s Legislative Session through the lens of “free enterprise, limited government, and civil society” it is clear that this state still has a long road to travel. Getting spending under control and reevaluating priorities is a necessary first step that was only half taken this year.
For those who do not view the state budget as the end-all, be-all measure of politics, this legislative session must be something of a disappointment. Little progress was made on transportation projects, healthcare issues, education challenges, or environmental cleanup. With some exceptions (notably crime), the status quo largely prevailed.
