Lt. Gov. Brown has been tapped by Gov. Martin O’Malley to lead state efforts on several major initiatives, including expansion of health coverage to hundreds of thousands of Marylanders and state actions to implement President Obama’s health care reform law.  He also is chair of the governor’s subcabinet on military base realignment and closure procedures (BRAC), which prepared Maryland for new BRAC-related jobs.  As a colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves, Lt. Gov. Brown has worked to improve benefits and services for Maryland’s veterans.  Other issues he champions include increasing access to higher education, protecting victims of domestic violence, and encouraging and recruiting families to become foster or adoptive parents.
