Meet & Greets in District 5

This fall, Senator Joe Getty will host five “Meet and Greet” events throughout the area encompassing the new Senate District 5. These informal receptions will provide an opportunity to meet with residents and discuss the upcoming 2014 legislation session including Getty’s new role as Senate Minority Leader and his appointment to the Senate Budget and Tax Committee.

Brinkley, Getty Tapped For Senate GOP Leadership

ANNAPOLIS, MD – The Republican senators of the Maryland Senate held a caucus meeting on Monday, where they elected Sen. David Brinkley (R – Carroll & Frederick) as Senate Minority Leader and Sen. Joe Getty (R – Baltimore & Carroll) as Senate Minority Whip.
 
“The 2014 session will be a springboard to the 2014 election,” said Brinkley who resides in Frederick County. “We look forward to challenging the tax-and-spend policies of the O’Malley-Brown administration over the last seven years that have crippled business expansion and hurt Maryland’s middle class families.”
 

Dog Owner Liability and Pit Bulls

During the 2012 August Special Session of the Maryland General Assembly, legislators considered a series of measures to address a Court of Appeals decision about liability for civil cases involving dog bites. The release of the court decision occurred in April after the adjournment of the regular 2012 legislative session.

The Court of Appeals case is titled, Tracey v. Solesky, and the decision contained two parts. First, it created a class of “inherently dangerous” dogs consisting of pit bulls, mixed pit bulls and other enumerated breeds and applied the standard of strict liability for injuries caused by these dogs. Second, it extended the strict liability standard to landlords whose renters own the “inherently dangerous” class of dogs.

SB 281 FAQs

Over the past summer, I have received many telephone calls and emails from constituents asking questions about the implementation of Gov. Martin O’Malley’s gun control bill – Senate Bill 281.
