Prince George's County Council chairman Mel Franklin said he is concerned that a proposal to exempt amusement parks from the county's minimum wage law could destabilize the regionwide pact to increase wages and open the floodgates for requests from other industries.
An effort is underway in Prince George's County to carve out an exemption to the much-ballyhooed "regional minimum wage" increase passed by lawmakers there, in Montgomery County and in Washington, D.C., last year.

Several Prince George's County leaders are expected to endorse Derrick Leon Davis in the race to replace former County Council member Leslie Johnson, a Davis spokesman said Monday.
Council member Derrick Leon Davis, who represents the area where Six Flags is located and introduced the exemption legislation, said he waited to bring up the idea until after the passage of the county wide wage hike because he wanted to ensure smooth passage of the bill as part of the regional effort.
"It's a very unique situation that brings to bear a unique response," said Mr. Davis, a Democrat whose district includes the Upper Marlboro area where Six Flags is located.
