The 15th Annual Annapolis Summit convened on January 10, 2018, on the Opening Day of the Maryland General Assembly.  The Marc Steiner Show partnered with The Daily Record, as we have for the past 5 years.

 Before an audience of over 160 participants, I interviewed Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Senate President Mike Miller, and Speaker of the House Michael Busch. A number of audience members lined up at the microphone and also asked their own questions of our state’s top elected officials. We covered a myriad of issues, including the state of education, taxes, crime, sexual harassment, health care, bail reform, renewable and clean energy and more.
The first podcast begins with a brief 3-minute interview with Sara Arthur, President of the Maryland State Bar Association– the Presenting Sponsor for the 2018 Annapolis Summit — and then for the next 30 minutes you will hear the conversation with Governor Larry Hogan. The second podcast is the one-hour interview with Senate President Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael Busch. To hear part one of this podcast, with Governor Hogan, click here.

In our newest Countdown to the Annapolis Summit podcast, we look at the issue of the Budget, which will be debated in the 2018 Maryland General Assembly.

As always, the budget looms as a crisis to be debated in Annapolis. Will the members of the legislature address the looming structural deficit of $1.2 Billion that is coming in the year 2022? How will they — or will they — pay for the billions of dollars for our schools it appears the Kirwin commission will suggest?  How much does the new federal tax plan affect Maryland’s citizens and our state budget?  What will the state legislature do?

Joining us are two State Senators, both of whom sit on the Budget and Taxation Committee: Washington County Republican Andrew A. Serafini, and Baltimore City Democrat Bill Ferguson.

The 15th Annual Annapolis Summit will be held on the Opening Day of the Maryland General Assembly, January 10, 2018, from 7:30-9:30am, at the Governor Calvert House in Annapolis.

As part of our lead up to the Annapolis Summit, we are continuing to bring you issues that will be discussed and debated in the 2018 Maryland Legislative Session. Today we examine the many questions associated with Sports Betting. Should Maryland allow legal sports betting? If so, when? Should they be at casinos only or also at the racetracks? And where should the money go? Should it be dedicated to education? What about compulsive gamblers — is this one more venue for them to lose everything? We are joined by Delegate Frank Turner, Democrat representing Howard County, and Del. Jason Buckel, Republican representing Allegany County.

The 15th Annual Annapolis Summit will be held on the Opening Day of the Maryland General Assembly, January 10, 2018, from 7:30-9:30am, at the Governor Calvert House in Annapolis.

Countdown to the Annapolis Summit: Health Care

In our lead up to the Annapolis Summit, we are examining the hot button issue of Healthcare, which will be debated front and center once again, in the 2018 Maryland General Assembly. Should Maryland compensate for the repeal of the federal individual mandate shifting that mandate to the state? Some officials are looking to “re-insurance,” supported by the insurance industry. Will anything ensure coverage for all? And what about cost containment?

The debate is illustrated in this podcast by our two guests: Vincent DeMarco, President of the Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative; and Baltimore County Republican Delegate Chris West.

The 15th Annual Annapolis Summit will be held on the Opening Day of the Maryland General Assembly, January 10, 2018, from 7:30-9:30am, at the Governor Calvert House in Annapolis.

The 15th annual Annapolis Summit will be held on January 10, 2018. As we countdown to the Summit we are covering issues that will be debated in the 2018 Maryland Legislative Session.
