Delegate Kathleen Dumais

Democrat, Maryland House of Delegates District 15

Legislative Action

I truly enjoy serving as a Delegate in the state of Maryland and I am proud of our accomplishments.  After the 2006 election, Speaker Busch appointed me to the leadership position of Parliamentarian of the House of Delegates. Soon after the November 2010 election, Speaker Bush promoted me to Vice Chair of the Judiciary Committee.  I sponsored over 100 bills during my first two terms and have been particularly effective in making improvements in the areas of family and juvenile law, as well as domestic violence. Further, I have successfully marshaled through legislation in the areas of consumer protection, law enforcement, drunk driving and estate planning.  The House leadership asked me on many occasions to assist in promoting the agenda of the Democratic Caucus by making motions and arguments in committee and on the floor. Additionally, I have been the floor leader for the Judiciary Committee on a myriad of pieces of legislation.

Please take a moment to review the pieces of legislation that I have worked on.
