Pr. Geo's officials to discuss ethics
Several bills that attempt to clamp down on developer influence in Prince George's County politics will be aired at 10 a.m. Saturday at a hearing by the county's delegation to the Maryland House, the Maryland Politics blog reports.
Among the measures are two proposals by County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) to limit County Council members' ability to get developer contributions from slates, which has been viewed as a backdoor way to obtain donations otherwise banned by county law. Baker is also seeking to limit the council's ability to oversee details of proposed new developments.
