Sen. Pipkin

State Sen. E. J. Pipkin addresses state and county officials in an October meeting in Annapolis over ways to deal with land use planning issues.


More than 60 Maryland state and county officials met in Annapolis Thursday to strategize ways to stop or delay several state land-planning initiatives they say will cost millions of dollars and halt growth in rural counties. State Sen. E.J. Pipkin, R-Upper Shore, who led the effort, urged opponents of PlanMaryland, the state's new septic proposals and more costly watershed requirements to speak out loudly and often. "We want you to know that you're not in this alone," Pipkin told a gathering of officials from all over the state. "There are lawmakers who will fight this in Annapolis."
