It was a big afternoon in Annapolis today, as the House Ways and Means Committee took up Maryland House Bill 1001 -- legislation aimed to protect the state's Transportation Trust Fund and to generate increased revenue for transportation projects. Montgomery County Chamber President & CEO Gigi Godwin testified in support of the bill and here is her testimony.

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett was also on hand to testify in support of the bill, along with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman and Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker.

A few weeks back, Godwin joined fellow business leaders to launch a statewide coalition aimed at protecting against any diversion of revenue from the state's transportation fund, for other purposes.
