ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Senate has passed three measures aimed at improving the state’s business climate.

The Senate voted 42-5 on Tuesday to create an advisory council to review proposed government regulations and determine whether they have a significant impact on small businesses.

Another bill to create a task force to help transfer technology developed in higher education to the marketplace was approved on a unanimous vote.

The Senate also voted unanimously for a training program to improve service provided by state agencies to businesses and the public.

The measures have already been passed by the House of Delegates, but there are some differences to work out between the two chambers. The measures are the result of the Augustine Commission, a panel that studied ways to improve the state’s business climate.
