Maryland Delegate Susan Krebs R - Carroll County:he Hogan/Rutherford Era Begins!
Md Delegate Susan Krebs R - Carroll County:he Hogan/Rutherford Era Begins!
After a week filled with briefings concerning the rise in Medicaid costs and the status of health insurance in Maryland, the activity in the General Assembly will now ramp up into high gear following the historic inauguration of Maryland's 62nd Governor, Larry Hogan and Lt. Governor, Boyd K. Rutherford.
My husband, Mark, joined me for the snowy Inauguration ceremonies on Wednesday and for the Gala that evening.
The Inauguration had a special significance for Carroll Countians. I was proud to help arrange for Carroll instructor, Lt. Col. Lee Mitchell, and his three daughters, to perform at the Pre-Inauguration Ceremony.
Read the great write up in the Carroll County Times.
Lt. Col. Mitchell, a former member of the Baltimore Opera, is a world-renown singer and is currently the senior Army Instructor of the JRROTC at Century High School.
He sang a heartwarming rendition of the "God Bless America" and "Impossible Dream," the signature song from the musical "Man of La Mancha." Three of Lt. Col. Mitchell's four daughters, Cierra, 29, Christen, 24, and Chelsea, 14, performed "America the Beautiful."
Having the Mitchell's perform at the Inauguration was one of the true highlights of the day.
Gov. Hogan Presents Budget
In one of his first actions in office, Governor Hogan proposed a common-sense budget that does not raise any taxes or fees. Maryland finally has a Governor who will actually stop spending more than he is taking in in revenue. Our focus will continue to be towards lowering taxes on Maryland's families and ensuring that our business climate is one that will allow our families to get back to work. Our Delegation will be working with Governor Hogan to assure that Carroll County receives its fair share of monies for our schools and infrastructure.

Governor Hogan Announces FY 2016 Budget
The growth in Medicaid is the single largest pressure on the state budget and there is no end in sight. As a member of the Health and Government Operations Committee, in addition to briefings on the budget and Medicaid, we also heard reports from the Maryland Healthcare Commission on TeleHealth, the Patient Centered Medical Home Pilot Program, a report on MRI study of self-referrals, and a report on Health Insurance Assignment of Benefits & Re-imbursement of Non-Preferred Providers.

Hogan Administration Seeks Green Bag Appointment
Governor Hogan is seeking candidates for Green Bag Appointments. These positions are civil officers that serve in a variety of capacities across the state, many are Boards and Commissions that may be of interest to you. But it is not enough to be qualified for the position, you must have a passion and want to serve your community. Most of the Boards and Commissions have slots for "Consumer Members" who have no direct relation to the profession it oversees. Give it a try, it may prove to be very interesting.

I am honored to still be serving Carroll County and the state of Maryland as the Delegate from District 5. I am particularly thrilled to have Larry Hogan as our new Governor.
