ABERDEEN, MD - Maryland's legislative leaders will review their vision for economic development at the winter meeting of the Maryland Economic Development Association (MEDA), on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2008, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Governor Calvert House on State Circle in Annapolis.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr., Speaker of the House of Delegates Michael E. Busch, Senate Minority Leader David R. Brinkley, and House Minority Leader Anthony J. O'Donnell will share their views on the General Assembly's outlook for economic development, particularly in light of the results of this fall's special session.

David W. Edgerley, secretary of Business and Economic Development (DBED), will be the luncheon speaker.

Several prominent business leaders will discuss their economic development priorities.

"We're looking forward to hearing from the experts about the effects of legislation passed in this fall's special session, and their priorities for the 2008 General Assembly session," MEDA President Timothy R. Troxell said in a prepared release. "Issues like re-regulation of gas and electric utilities and the sales and use tax on computer services are expected to be hot-button issues in the new year."
