Maryland Military Coalition    
Speak with one voice!

 INTRODUCING THE MARYLAND MILITARY COALITION (MMC)

Veterans and military members can accomplish more in the Maryland General Assembly when the military community comes together as one powerful voice. That’s the reason for establishment of the Maryland Military Coalition, now preparing for its role in 2021.

MMC will work hard to project a clear, united message to Maryland lawmakers. With about 460,000 military-connected people in the State, the need to “speak with one voice” is very clear.

Also see MMC's legislative agenda for 2021.  It features items of interest to actively serving members, retirees, and surviving spouses and family members, as well as health care in general.  In addition, going to the MMC’s page www.mdmilcoalition.org/advocacy gives you access to a wealth of resources, including a legislation tracker that identifies critical bills, and information on steps to follow if someone wishes to present testimony in favor of a certain bill during the time of COVID.

The area of interest for the 2021 legislative session are:

  • Mental Health & Suicide prevention (SB164)
  • Establish a Commission for a new Women's Memorial (SJ003)
  • Reduce/Eliminate State Tax on all Uniform Services retired pay (SB370 / HB166)
  • Expand the Property Tax Credit for Disabled Veterans -  See "State Tax Exemption" Heading for more detail (SB258 / HB591)
  • Establish a State Tax "check off" for the Veterans Trust Fund (HB358 / HB591)
  • Student and Military Voter Empowerment (SB283 / HB156)
  • Higher Education Non-Resident Tuition Exemption for spouses (HB410)
