Anne Arundel executive will try again to close forest clearing loophole after council votes down a fix

May 5, 2021

Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman said he would try again to close a loophole in the county forest law Tuesday, one day after the County Council defeated legislation that would have required a grading permit before cutting a certain amount of trees. During a media briefing Tuesday morning, Pittman said his administration would work on addressing concerns about the legislation introduced by Councilwoman Lisa Brannigan Rodvien but rejected. “I believe it has to come back,” Pittman said. “I know the council wants to close this loophole.”
