Montgomery County, MD, resolution on e-book pricing

On July 23, 2013, the County Council of Montgomery County, Maryland, adopted their Resolution 17-821: Equitable access to e-books for Montgomery County Public Libraries. The resolution states:

The Council believes that patrons of Montgomery County Public Libraries should have equitable access to e-books at fair prices.

Therefore, the Council urges the General Assembly, the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the Federal Trade Commission to examine this issue and seek any appropriate remedy so that County library users will have the access to materials in a reasonable and non-discriminatory manner.
