I and other blind people suffer from a 70 percent unemployment rate, and this lack of action on the part of Delegate Robinson is a disgrace and a violation of democratic principles. No one should attempt to pass legislation without first learning how it will impact the people that it directly effects. I'm outraged at the poor treatment I've been getting by Delegate Robinson and her inability to try and hear both sides of the story, especially since so much of the information that she is hearing is false. Once again, I formally invite Delegate Robinson to meet with me and my fellow BISM associates so she can hear the impact that her bill, HB 349, will have on us. Blind Industries and Services of Maryland's doors are always open, and we would love for her to tour our operation that she is threatening to shut down. She will then see firsthand what BISM does and how important we are to the Baltimore community.
