A small but much needed change that helps simplify an already complex unemployment system. #mdga21
Maryland’s unemployment insurance claimants will begin receiving their benefit payments through direct deposit in April 2021. Claimants will receive instructions about the transition to a fast, safe, and convenient direct deposit payment program in March. http://labor.maryland.gov/whatsnews/uidd.shtml
When asked why Maryland is 48th in the country in distributing vaccine his Health Secretary really said this:
“To be honest with you, I’m reluctant to distract people by focusing on data and analysis.” https://twitter.com/RobbynLewis46th/status/1364041747735658501
Maryland has underfunded - starved - its public health system for decades. Facing pandemic, we squander precious public dollars to pay privateers to handle vax distribution? I'm out of rage hashtags. #vaccineequity #MDGA21 http://bit.ly/37CqFfU

Baltimore @MayorBMScott announces he’s removing the one hour time limit on indoor and outdoor dining in the city as of Monday
Families are still struggling to put food on the table, and businesses are trying to keep their doors open; the RELIEF Act, signed into law yesterday, will help aid Marylanders in need.
The House just passed this bill to expand paid time off for voting, 91 for, 38 against. #mdga21 https://twitter.com/palakovichcarr/status/1351182854932324358
I'm hoping the House will once again pass legislation sponsored by Senator Susan Lee and myself to expand paid time off for voting. Workers should be able to take paid time off to vote during early voting or on election day. The House hearing is on January 19th.
Thank you @palakovichcarr for sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
Everyone should be given every opportunity to vote in Maryland. That's why I just voted to pass HB398- a bill that requires Maryland employers to allow workers up to 2 hours absence to vote in an election.
"Our dynamic system must move toward a place where everyone who is allowed to vote can vote in a convenient, safe and transparent process."
