Legislative career

Busch first got involved in politics at the urging of parents of his students. After winning election in 1986 to the House of Delegates, Busch served on the Judiciary Committee, the Economic Matters Committee, which he later chaired, and as Chairman of the Anne Arundel County Delegation.

At the beginning of the 2003 session of the Maryland Legislature, Busch was elected, by his colleagues in the Maryland House of Delegates, Speaker of the House. Speaker Busch is known for his interest in the areas of health, insurance, and economic development, with a focus on health care. During the 2007 legislative session, he sponsored a bill with other members of the leadership, the Children and Working Families Healthcare Act of 2007, which proposed to provide health care access to 250,000 Marylanders and all children in the state.
