2018 Legislative Priorities
The Transportation Association of Maryland (TAM) has identified the priority issue that we will support during the 2018 session of the Maryland General Assembly.
Funding Shortfalls in Demand Response, especially Non-Emergency Medical Transportation
A combination of static funding from state and federal sources, increased costs, and greatly increased demand for paratransit services is creating an increasing strain upon the resources of TAM member organizations. These services, which are overwhelmingly needed by the most vulnerable Maryland residents - such as the disabled, elderly, and chronically ill - are in jeopardy due to this funding shortfall. In addition, the expansion and improvement of other services provided by Maryland community transportation organizations, such as regular fixed route service, are restrained by the need to devote more and more resources to services such as dialysis transportation. As an advocate for community transportation in Maryland, TAM will be pursuing all options to find solutions to this continuing crisis during the 2018 session.
