Flag restriction bill voted down by Anne Arundel County Council Democratic majority

October 5, 2022

The Democratic majority of the Anne Arundel County Council voted down a controversial bill that would have banned outside parties from being authorized to fly their flags on county flagpoles. Pasadena Republican Council member Nathan Volke, the legislation’s sponsor, initially introduced a broader bill banning all flags from county flagpoles other than the U.S., state and county standards. After community pushback, Volke revised the bill, but still failed to get the necessary votes at Monday night’s County Council meeting. The legislation failed along party lines with only Volke’s Republican colleagues, Amanda Fiedler of Arnold and Jessica Haire of Edgewater.
