Plotting a Future for Baby Boomers
The Baby Boomer Initiative Act may be the bill with the catchiest name of the 2007 General Assembly.
Approved Saturday by the House of Delegates, it addresses the needs of one of Maryland's fastest-growing populations: people born after World War II who are getting ready to retire but are in good health and have no plans to slow down.
The bill establishes the Baby Boomer Initiative Council, made up of state officials and business and university representatives who would come up with ideas for new jobs for senior citizens. The bill's sponsor, Del. James W. Hubbard (D-Prince George's), called it an effort "to keep baby boomers from falling into an empty-nest syndrome."
