Baltimore residents and local officials told state lawmakers that they want to see legislation improving public transportation, education, public safety and decriminalizing drug use in the city during the next legislative session, which starts in January. “This is a very important year for the future of the city. The 2020 census has given us some sobering reminders about where there’s work to be done,” Del. Stephanie Smith (D-Baltimore), chair of the Baltimore City House delegation, said at the start of a three-hour virtual public hearing on state legislative priorities Monday night.
