This Thursday, the Health and Human Services (HHS) Committee takes up public health services, including the Minority Health Initiatives, and the Public Safety (PS) Committee looks at the Office of Consumer Protection.

On Monday, April 11, the Government Operations and Fiscal Policy Committee (GO) considers several smaller budgets, including the grants to municipalities, while the Planning Housing and Economic Development (PHED) Committee takes up the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Also on Monday, the Transportation, Infrastructure, Energy and Environment Committee (T&E) begins its discussions of transportation items, and the HHS Committee considers aging and disabilities services and special needs housing.

On Tuesday, April 12, the combined HHS/Education Committees look at various children’s programs, and the T&E Committee takes up utilities, including WSSC.

On Wednesday, April 13, the HHS Committee looks at grants, including the Arts and Humanities Council; the PHED Committee takes up economic development issues; and the GO Committee looks at issues related to communications and technology.
