Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 12:00 pm via conference call

The 2015 session of the Maryland General Assembly has begun! You’re invited to join Executive Director John Nethercut in a conference call on February 5 for a look ahead at PJC advocacy during the legislative session. Please RSVP to Jennifer Pelton at (410) 625-9409 x239 or peltonj@publicjustice.org for call-in information.
 
Join John to discuss legislative priorities, such as:
  • The Healthy Working Families Act, which would give more Maryland workers the opportunity to earn paid sick days
  • Protecting Medicaid and other social safety net programs from budget cuts
  • A bill to implement the recommendations of the Civil Right to Counsel Task Force, which called for a phased-in right to counsel in civil domestic violence cases and a right to counsel pilot program in child custody matters
  • A bill to award attorneys fees to people whose rights under the Maryland Constitution have been violated
  • Improving paystub transparency, greater protection for whistleblowers, and other worker protections
  • Reforming the Maryland Public Information Act
  • And more!
