Legislative requests

September 21, 1999

Other possible legislative agenda requests discussed Tuesday by the Washington County Commissioners:




- Get authority to reimburse the County Commissioners for job-related expenses, including mileage.

- Ask the state to pay at least some of the $1.29 million cost of funding public school nurses, who are employees of the Washington County Health Department, County Administrator Rodney Shoop said.

At least seven Maryland counties receive state money for the state-mandated school nurses while Washington County receives nothing, he said.

- Stop requiring the County Commissioners to reimburse the Maryland Department of Natural Resources for 50 percent of the salary of state firefighters when the fire is on state land.

- Change the dates of state appointments to the Washington County Gaming Commission so they don't interfere with the commission's funding decisions.

- Increase daily fees for chief Election Board judges from $100 per day to $125 per day and those of other Election Board judges from $80 to $100 daily.

- Ask for financial help with the construction of new Washington County libraries, such as one planned in Clear Spring.
