In addition, the General Assembly passed SB728 (aka the Amazon bill) which will require out of state vendors to comply with Maryland tax laws. This money will be used for our public schools in the future.

Now Governor Hogan needs to sign the legislation.

Take action today and ask Governor Hogan to sign SB1030 (the Kirwan legislation), SB728 (the Amazon bill) and to release the funds to the public school districts in the coming school year.

It is up to us to make sure Governor Hogan knows Marylanders from around the state want him to sign The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future and the Amazon bill which ensures funding for public education for future years.
