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.”
