About Maryland Free
Maryland Free is a statewide, nonpartisan political research and education organization supported by corporations, trade associations, chambers of commerce, small businesses, and individuals. We were founded in 1983 as Maryland Business for Responsive Government and changed our name in 2019 to better reflect our mission.
The purpose of Maryland Free is to:
INFORM Maryland’s businesses, elected officials, and the general public about the political and economic climate needed to foster economic development and job creation in Maryland.
IMPROVE the role of business in Maryland’s public policy.
PROVIDE support for pro-business candidates.
ENABLE business to hold politicians accountable for the state’s economic well-being—like no other organization—through Maryland Free’s evaluations of the voting records of Maryland’s state legislators.
