Senate President Mike Miller (lt.) announced he will remain in the Senate but is stepping down from the Presidency due to illness. Baltimore City District 46 Senator Bill Ferguson (rt.) was named by his Democratic colleagues to assume the role. GMOM designated Sen. Ferguson a Democracy Champion after the 2018 legislative session for his efforts to help pass the Democracy Amendment Resolution in the Senate after it had passed the House.
