Maryland explores tightening law on public-private partnerships amid proposal to build new toll lanes

March 29, 2021

Maryland’s law governing public-private partnerships, or P3s, passed in 2013 with little fanfare. Lawmakers say it was mostly seen as a way to build the light-rail Purple Line in suburban Washington, which by then enjoyed relatively broad political support but lacked state funding.
