Need help in finding the right advocacy resources?  The following links will guide you to answering many questions you may have, such as:

  1. How Do I Find My State Senator and Delegates?:  Using this site, found on the Maryland Legislative Information Services (MLIS) site, just enter in your home or business address (Street Address and City).
  2. How Do I Find What Bills Have Been Introduced in a Legislative Session?  Again, using the MLIS site, go here.
  3. How Can I Get Access to the Briefings the Members of the Maryland General Assembly Receive?  Go here, to the “Fiscal Briefings, Reports, and Analyses.”
  4. I understand that the legislative staff prepares an extensive overview of major issues that are likely to be brought before the Maryland General Assembly.  Where can I find that document?  It is known as the Major Issues Review and an example (for the 2011-2014 Sessions) is found here.
  5. Where Can I Find What Legislation Has Been Introduced in Congress?   The most accessible place is through THOMAS, found here.   THOMAS was launched in January of 1995, at the inception of the 104th Congress. The leadership of the 104th Congress directed the Library of Congress to make federal legislative information freely available to the public.
  6. How about legislation that is to be brought before the Corridor county governments?
    1. Anne Arundel County:  The County Council is the legislative body, and all pending legislation is found here.   For quick information about the Council members, etc., go here.

  7. Similarly, where can I find information about a particular municipality in Maryland?  First, go to the Maryland Municipal League (MML) website, found here.  Then search for the municipality about which you are inquiring.  Most municipalities have websites and further information may be obtained through the website, including proposed legislation.
