President's Message

The death of long-time Speaker of the House of Delegates, Mike Busch eclipsed the usual Sine Die* celebrations of bills passed and regrets about good bills for which “time ran out.” WDC joins Marylanders across the state, regardless of party affiliation, in mourning his passing.
