Maryland is once again considering retiring its state songBreaking News
On Wednesday, the House Health and Government Operations Committee was considering two bills: one by Frederick County Delegate Karen Lewis Young, D-District 3A, that would change the format of the song to retire all but one original verse, and add a verse written in 1894 by White, a poet from Middletown.
The second bill was introduced by Delegate Christopher R. West, R-Baltimore County, which would set up a competition to find a new state song.
The proposals join a number of pitches to change “Maryland, My Maryland” during this General Assembly session.
