HB 443 – Economic Development – Makerspace Initiative Pilot Program

This past Thursday, we held a hearing on HB 443. This is a bill I sponsored in an effort to help establish makerspaces across the state. This would be a place where groups of people with similar ideas can come together to start businesses, for the community to come together, and for people to interact. There are two makerspace areas in Maryland: one in Baltimore and the other in Allegany County. This will also help with creating new jobs in the state.
