Montgomery County to Introduce New Legislation to Prohibit the Possession of Firearms in or Near Places of Public Assembly

Like New York, Maryland has a proper-cause requirement for wear-and-carry handgun licenses. Gov. Larry Hogan, in response to Bruen, instructed the Maryland State Police not to enforce the proper-cause element of the Maryland law. As a result of the Supreme Court ruling and Governor Hogan’s order to the Maryland State Police, more individuals in Maryland likely will carry firearms, regardless of whether the individuals have any good or substantial reason to carry them.

The goal of this bill is to reduce gun violence in Montgomery County.

A public hearing is scheduled for July 26.”

Also on July 12: Vote expected on bills which would require the Office of Legislative Oversight to prepare climate assessments for all legislation, zoning measures and master plans and to establish Montgomery County’s Office of Food System Resilience

The Council will meet on Tuesday, July 12 at 1 p.m. The meeting will begin with two proclamations. The first, presented by Councilmembers Jawando and Rice, will recognize the Teacher of the Year. The second, presented by Council President Albornoz and County Executive Elrich, will recognize the Maryland Israel Development Center.

More detail on each agenda item is provided below.

Public Hearings

Bill 10-22, Personnel and Human Resources – Paid Parental Leave

Public hearing: The Council will hold a public hearing on Bill 10-22, the Paid Parental Leave Act, which would provide six weeks of paid parental leave for County employees. By providing paid parental leave, the legislation is likely to improve maternal health, allow for parents to have greater involvement in care and enhance the economic security of the many families who support County government operations. In addition, paid parental leave has been shown to increase retention and productivity and boost labor force participation.

The lead sponsor is Councilmember Friedson. All other Councilmembers are cosponsors. The joint Government Operations and Fiscal Policy (GO) and Health and Human Services (HHS) Committee is tentatively scheduled to review the bill on July 14.

Bill 11-22, Buildings – Lactation Rooms in County Buildings – Required

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that Montgomery County has one of the highest rates of breastfeeding initiation in the state of Maryland, at 96.3 percent. The Right to Nourish Act is aimed at supporting these efforts, so that parents won’t be forced to choose between returning to work and continuing to breastfeed.

The lead sponsor is Councilmember Friedson. Council President Albornoz, Council Vice President Glass, and Councilmembers Hucker, Katz, Navarro, Riemer and Jawando are cosponsors. The joint GO and HHS Committee is tentatively scheduled to review the bill on July 14.

Bill 12-22, Electricity – Board of Electrical Examiners – Licenses – Permit Requirements

Public hearing: The Council will hold a public hearing on Bill 12-22 – Electricity – Board of Electrical Examiners – Licenses – Permit, which would reflect changes made by the state assumption of the electrical licensing process in the 2021 Maryland Electricians Act.

The lead sponsor is the Council President, at the request of the County Executive.

The source of funds is the federal E-Rate Program reimbursement, which allows MCPS to expand student access to technology.

The lead sponsor is the Council President, at the request of the County Executive.

If enacted, during a period of six months after its effective date, any notices of rent increases in the County would be limited to no more than 4.4 percent. In addition, during the six-month period, a landlord within the County would be precluded from notifying a tenant of a rent increase that exceeds 4.4 percent. As a result, rent increases of more than 4.4 percent would be precluded for nine months after the bill’s effective date since landlords in the County must give 90-days advance notice of a rent increase. A public hearing is scheduled for July 26.

The lead sponsor is the Council President, at the request of the County Executive.

Bill 3-22, Legislative Branch – Climate Assessments – Required

Vote expected: The Council is expected to vote on Bill 3-22, Legislative Branch – Climate Assessments – Required, which would require the director of the Office of Legislative Oversight (OLO) to prepare a climate assessment for each bill, zoning text amendment (ZTA), master plan and master plan amendment pending before the Council.

The County Executive requested that the Council consider this as expedited legislation to take advantage of the current market conditions this summer.

Resolution to designate the Children’s Opportunity Alliance of Montgomery County as the County’s Early Care and Education Coordinating Entity

Introduction, suspension of rules and vote expected: The Council will introduce and make a motion to suspend the Rules of Procedure to allow an immediate vote on a resolution to designate the Children’s Opportunity Alliance of Montgomery County as the County’s Early Care and Education Coordinating Entity. On Feb. 15, 2022, the Council approved Bill 42-21, sponsored by Council President Albornoz and Councilmembers Navarro and Rice, which requires the Council to designate a nonprofit corporation to serve as the County’s early care and education coordinating entity.

The County’s proposed Early Care and Education Coordinating Entity will work to improve access, equity and inclusion in early care and education programs while helping the sector recover from challenges caused by the pandemic. In addition, the entity will also improve the availability of affordable quality early care and education in the County.

High-quality and affordable early child care and education is an essential service for the well-being and future of children and families, as well as employers. The group would serve as a neutral convenor of all major stakeholders to develop a community consensus for the County’s early childhood education sector and must adopt and implement a racial equity and social justice policy consistent with the County’s policy.

Bill 42-21 builds upon the Montgomery County Early Care and Education Initiative (ECEI), which was spearheaded in 2019 by Councilmember Navarro, then serving as Council President, and County Executive Elrich, in partnership with MCPS and Montgomery College. This four-year action plan earmarked $7 million in funding to expand quality early care and educational opportunities for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

Resolution to adopt a Proposed Amendment to County Charter General Provisions – Conflicting Charter Amendments

Introduction: The Council will introduce a resolution which would place Question A on the 2022 General Election Ballot, asking voters to decide whether to amend Section 507 of the County Charter regarding what happens if, during an election, voters approve two different Charter amendments that conflict with each other.

Under current law, neither amendment would take effect in that situation. Both amendments would fail. Under the proposed Charter amendment, only the amendment with the highest number of favorable votes would win and amend the County Charter. The other amendment would fail.

This amendment was proposed to the Council in the 2022 Report of the Charter Review Commission. The lead sponsor is the Council President at the request of the Charter Review CommissionA public hearing and vote are scheduled for July 26.

Resolution to adopt a Proposed Amendment to County Charter – County Attorney – Removal Procedures

Introduction: The Council will introduce a resolution to adopt a proposed amendment to County Charter regarding the County Attorney and removal procedures. The resolution would place Question B on the 2022 General Election Ballot, asking voters to decide whether to amend Section 213 of the County Charter to require both the Council and the Executive to remove the County Attorney. Under current law, only the Executive may remove the County Attorney. This Charter amendment would require the Council to consent to the Executive’s removal of the County Attorney. It would also allow the Council to remove the County Attorney with the Executive’s consent.

The lead sponsor is Council President Albornoz. A public hearing and vote are scheduled for July 26.

District Council Session

 

Resolution to extend time for Council Action on the Thrive Montgomery 2050 Plan from July 18, 2022, to close of business on September 16, 2022

Vote expected on resolution to extend time only: The Council will vote on a resolution to extend time for Council Action on the Thrive Montgomery 2050 Plan from July 18, 2022, to close of business on September 16, 2022.

The Thrive Montgomery 2050 Plan contains the text and supporting maps for a comprehensive amendment to current the General Plan for the County. It sets a vision for the county and encompasses broad, county-wide policy recommendations for land use, zoning, housing, the economy, equity, transportation, parks and open space, the environment and historic resources.

The Thrive Montgomery 2050 Planning Board Draft was transmitted to the Council on April 13, 2021. Two public hearings were held on June 17 and June 29, 2021. Then, the Planning, Housing and Economic Development (PHED) Committee held nine meetings to review the draft plan. The Committee completed its review on Oct. 25, incorporating its recommended changes into a PHED Committee Draft Plan. The PHED Committee’s draft will be the basis for Council review and discussion. Before beginning its work, the Council held two listening sessions with close to 150 speakers and the five Regional Service Center Advisory Boards hosted discussions about Thrive at their January meetings.

In Feb. 2022, the full Council held its first meeting to discuss the draft Plan. The focus of the meeting was on the results of a memorandum from Office of Legislative Oversight (OLO), providing a racial equity and social justice review of the Draft Plan. The OLO analysis was completed at the requested of the Council President.

The OLO memorandum recommends a chapter-by-chapter, in-depth review of the policies and practices recommended in the Plan using best practices for developing racially and socially equitable policies, as well as inclusion of a new chapter that describes the historical and current drivers of racial and social inequities in land use, housing and transportation.

In response to the OLO memorandum, the Council approved the hiring of a consultant to solicit input from under-represented communities on the policies and practices recommended in the PHED Committee Draft of Thrive Montgomery 2050. In March 2022, two solicitations were released for consultant assistance following County requirements.

After careful consideration of the responses, Nspiregreen, working with Public Engagement Associates, were selected to lead this effort. At a meeting held on June 21, 2022, the team from Nspiregreen provided a briefing to the Council and responded to questions.

The work of the consultants is expected to continue into September 2022, after which a draft chapter on racial equity and social justice will be delivered for Council review. In addition, Council staff are expected to provide draft text related to the Plan’s impact on the environment and economic development.
