The Maryland legislative session is right around the corner.
The session begins on Jan. 11, and some legislators are looking forward to propose changes.
Washington County Delegate of District 2A, Neil Parrott, said, looking back on last year, he’s satisfied with Maryland’s tighter laws on drunk driving. Last year, a law was established requiring first time drunk driving offenders to have a breathalyzer in the car, in which the car will only start if the driver’s breath is clear of alcohol.
As Parrott looks forward to the next year, he hopes to focus on traffic issues, guns and budgets, saying the state needs to cut down on borrowing money.
“We are borrowing a lot of money every single year. We have to borrow less money, or the long term consequences will be that our home taxes that we pay on our house are going to have to increase,” Parrott said.
