On Feb. 24, Cluster testified before the House Appropriations Committee about the bill, and, according to the video, he had some news about the SJPC's thoughts on the issue: "they're actually looking at putting together a task force," he explained, "maybe looking at some kind of co-funding, or whatever it may take, but still turn the Baltimore City Detention Center back over to Baltimore City." Later in the hearing, he added, "maybe that may be the right way to go, to look at a task force, to bring Baltimore City . . . to the table, and have them tell us exactly why they can't do it, other than . . . they don't have the money to do it. I mean, that's basically what their one-page opposition paper says." So, Cluster continued, "if they do the task force over in the Senate, then maybe we look at a task force over here in the House, also."
