Washington PostNew Montgomery County council president Nancy Floreen is pushing the idea of creating an economic development authority to try to spur job growth in the county.

She said Monday she wants officials to look at the experiences in Fairfax and Prince William counties and elsewhere, but didn't have specifics on what a Montgomery authority might look like.

"Montgomery County needs to get in the game," Floreen said. "There are best practices in the region--well, at least there are practices across the region. Are they the best?"
