Susan Lee’s 2014 Legislative Record

Delegate Susan Lee, who has represented District 16 in the Maryland House of Delegates since 2002 and who now is running to represent the District as its next State Senator, completed another legislative session in 2014 with significant accomplishments in the fields of education, cyber security, minimum wage, and preservation of state wetlands. A copy of her 2014 Legislative Session Letter is available on her website.

Among the other bills written or co-sponsored by Susan Lee were bills to support emerging technologies, protect abused and neglected children, and expand the availability of pre-kindergarten.

“I appreciate the input and support received from so many of my constituents in the 16th District this year,” said Delegate Lee. “It has been my privilege to serve each of my Montgomery County neighbors in the Maryland General Assembly.”
