County Council Actions:
Prince George's Council passed two critical bills after working until 1:30am to vote on some 68 bills. The critical bills passed are:
CB-54: Representative Deni Taveras's "Environmental Crimes Bill" which creates a special unit to prosecute illegal dumping and littering in the county.
CB-99: Campaign Financing to help reduce outside and corporate donations to local politicians. The bill still requires the County Administrator's signature to become law. The bill provides campaign funds to politicians running for office if they agree to accept small donations only, and only from local constituents.
