Craig Rice Hints At Future Cooperation With D.C., Prince George's County

Last month, the councils in both Montgomery and Prince George's Counties passed a hike in the minimum wage as part of a regional effort with the District of Columbia. Cooperation of this kind could be happening again very soon.

Craig Rice, who was recently voted Montgomery County Council president, says he's already talked with some of his colleagues in neighboring jurisdictions about tackling more issues like Montgomery, Prince George's, and D.C. did with the minimum wage.

But he's being tight-lipped about what those issues will be for the time being.

"Social justice issues that do affect us all. That came up as part of a conversation with one of my Prince George's colleagues the other day," Rice says. "So, there will be a number of things. At this point it's very early to say what exactly those are. We're still trying to hone those."

But Rice adds expect an announcement soon...possibly as early as after this week's Maryland Association of Counties conference on the Eastern Shore...where politicians from all of Maryland's counties meet.
