Bring transportation decisions out from behind closed doors.
Never before have we seen a state agency refuse to implement a new law.
Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is playing games instead of moving forward on the law passed last year to improve accountability, transparency, and fiscal responsibility in the funding of major transportation projects -- with our tax dollars.
Never before have we seen a state agency blatantly lie about a law and what it does.
MDOT is even calling for the law to be repealed.
Please help us to stand up for more transparency, better transportation projects, and smarter use of taxpayer dollars. Ask your legislators to stay strong, stand up to this bureaucratic nonsense, and bring transportation decisions out from behind closed doors.

1000 Friends of Maryland has worked for the past six years in Charles County, resulting in a new plan for the county’s future that significantly prevents pollution and fosters more cost-effective development. This new plan is vastly different from the developers’ vision that was heading toward adoption.
1000 Friends of Maryland led this exciting and hard-fought campaign to create a sustainable plan that demonstrates how effective good land use planning can be. Changing the future of Charles County from the original developer-created plan to the citizen-supported vision prevents serious water pollution, protects forest and farmland, saves important fisheries, reduces drinking water threats and saves taxpayers billions of dollars.
