Leggett, Baker, Ulman Urge Congress to Act to Avoid Sequester

Effects Could be Devastating to Local Governments

Tuesday, February 19, 2013; 9:30 a.m.

Executive Office Building, 101 Monroe Street, 2nd Floor, Rockville


Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett, Prince Georges County Executive Rushern Baker and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman will urge Congress to find a way to avoid the sequester that will go into effect on March 1 unless action is taken. The sequester would have a damaging impact on local economies in Maryland, cutting federal funds and severely impacting federal employees, federal contractors, education, social services and many other areas.
