Just days into 2017, newly elected City Councilman Isaac “Yitzy” Schleifer introduced a bill to impose term limits on Baltimore’s elected officials.
It was promptly put in a drawer, where it has sat for more than a year.
Councilman Ryan Dorsey, a fellow freshman, tried to pass “Complete Streets” legislation to create more bike lanes, bus lanes and sidewalks in Baltimore.
It’s bogged down amid a dispute with the city’s transportation department.
And new Councilman Kris Burnett threw himself behind legislation to require employers in Baltimore to pay a minimum wage of $15 per hour. It passed — but was quickly vetoed.
