4-6-12: A Watered-Down Septic Bill

April 6, 2012 at 8:34 am Leave a comment

The regular session for Maryland’s General Assembly ends Monday, and lawmakers are still considering hundreds of bills.

That includes one measure that would change how and where septic systems are developed in Maryland.  The next stop for the bill is a vote on the House floor…it passed out of the Senate last week with major amendments.  In its original form, the bill would have given the state the final word in where septic systems could be placed—but the bill was amended to leave that power to the counties.

Sheilah talks about the bill with Dru-Schmidt-Perkins, Executive Director of 1,000 Friends of Maryland, who supported the original version of the bill, and with  Les Knapp, Associate Director of the Maryland Association of Counties—or MACo. He opposed the original version of the bill, but withdrew that opposition after it was amended.
