The Maryland Defend the Guard Act is set for a hearing on Feb. 8. If you live in Maryland, you can help support the bill by taking a few simple steps.

Background: Del. Robin Grammer (R) introduced House Bill 273 (HB273) on Jan. 13. The legislation would prohibit the governor from releasing any unit or member of the Maryland National Guard into “active duty combat” unless Congress has passed an official declaration of war or has taken an official action under article I, § 8, clause 15 of the Constitution. You can read more about the legislation at this link.

A hearing on HB273 is scheduled in the House Health and Government Operations Committee for Feb. 8 at 3 p.m.
