Delegate John F. Wood Jr., who is vice chairman of the subcommittee, said the Archives had a near-miss a couple of years ago when it was in the running to receive an Annapolis building vacated by Maryland State Police barracks. The space went to another agency.
He said lawmakers should look more closely at funding a new facility and doesn’t expect the Archives to give up its fight.
“It’s something I think that we should be looking at - and not keep putting it off and putting it off,” said Mr. Wood, St. Mary’s Democrat. “I’m sure they’re going to be back every year until they get it.”
