ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will testify in favor of a measure to create a framework for public-private partnerships to build roads and public buildings.
Brown is scheduled to testify before the House Environmental Matters Committee on Friday.
A similar bill failed to pass last year. Its prospects were complicated by a provision that was added to allow legal appeals on such projects to be heard on an expedited track before the Court of Special Appeals.
While Maryland has entered into public-private partnerships over the past five years, the private sector and the General Assembly have asked that the process be improved to attract private investment to help build new infrastructure in Maryland.
