I traveled to four legislative conferences, starting with one hosted by the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators (NCEL). I spoke on a panel about Maryland’s first-in-the-nation Styrofoam ban that I sponsored. (It goes into effect July 1, 2020.)
Immediately following NCEL was the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). Experts shared advice with the thousands of legislators and legislative staff who attended. I presented on Ranked Choice Voting; learned educated about the increasing number of cybersecurity risks; and was inspired by keynotes Dolly Parton, historian Jon Meacham, and Maryland native and best-selling author Wes Moore.
