Bill Would Legalize Fortune Telling In Carroll Co.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland lawmakers foresee a bright future for fortune tellers, palm readers and other soothsayers in Carroll County.

A measure to repeal a 38-year ban on fortune telling in the rural Maryland county won approval from the Senate this week and the House of Delegates last week. A spokesman for Gov. Martin O’Malley said he has not reviewed the measure yet.

Sen. Joseph Getty, R-Carroll, who is sponsoring the Senate bill, said he filed it after the Maryland Court of Appeals ruled last year that such bans violate the First Amendment.

The Harford County Council repealed its 31-year-old ban on fortune-telling last week.

    Wow, way to stick with the important matters at hand elected officials… Fortune tellers get the green light as well as the children of illegal immigrants get in-state tuition rates.

    Thank you for nothing.
