The Maryland General Assembly has served nearly continuously from Maryland’s founding in 1634. For over 370 years, the Maryland General Assembly has consisted of citizen legislators – part-time elected officials who live and work in their communities. Marylanders are typically represented by four legislators in the General Assembly – three members of the House of Delegates and one state Senator. The General Assembly makes laws for the state, may levy taxes and may reduce or restrict the budget proposed each year by the Governor.
