What's Happening in Maryland

After 90 days and 3,100 bills, the Maryland General Assembly ended a successful 2018 legislative session for AOBA members. Much of AOBA’s legislative effort was directed to stopping the enactment of harmful legislation. We were again successful in defeating in overwhelming numbers the bills we opposed, such as costly employer, utility and rental housing mandates. A few bills that were enacted of interest to our members were amended to ease problem provisions.
