Shirley's Record

Legislative Achievements

Since my election to the Maryland General Assembly in 1995, I have been instrumental in sponsoring numerous bills and have to my credit over 40 pieces of legislation that have been signed in to law where I was the primary sponsor. As a co-sponsor I have hundreds of bills that were signed into law.

I am proud to say that each year I have grown as a legislator and have more in-depth understanding of the issues that are unique to my constituents, as well as those that impact the lives of all Marylanders.
