We've heard from some of the architects of the biggest stories in Annapolis this year and asked them what they’ve accomplished during a period when Marylanders have needed them most. On episode 11 of The Lobby, we’re picking up where we left off with Senator Craig Zucker (MD-14) and Quinton Askew of Maryland 2-1-1. We’ll talk with Delegate Bonnie Cullison (MD-19) about the successes of the 2021 session, the work of groups like NAMI Maryland and RALI Maryland to combat the increase in substance misuse and mental illness during COVID, using reverse auctions to save the state money on prescription medicines without sacrificing coverage, and what The Thomas Bloom Raskin Act means for Marylanders, as well as her long-time efforts to increase school-based health centers.
