County Can Move Forward on Nearly $250 Million in County-Funded, Shovel-Ready Projects

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski today issued the following statement in response the passage of the Built to Learn Act by the Maryland House of Delegates in a vote of 128-6:

"Today's historic and bipartisan vote is a critical step in providing our children and educators here in Baltimore County-and across the state-with the modern school facilities they deserve.

"I've proudly led the fight for increased state investment in school construction to ensure Baltimore County can finally move forward on nearly $250 million in County-funded, shovel-ready projects.

"I applaud Speaker Jones and the Maryland House of Delegates for moving quickly on this priority and I look forward to continuing to work with Senate President Ferguson to get the job done this year for communities across Maryland."
