Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee
A Maryland measure that would close some nonviolent criminal misdemeanor records from public access after a three- to five-year waiting period is scheduled for hearings.
Another hot-button issue is being tackled by lawmakers during the special session. A Senate panel has passed a bill agreeing to discuss the ruling by the Maryland Court of Appeals declaring pit bulls as “inherently dangerous”.
Calls to repeal the Maryland death penalty are met with opposition…again. Lawmakers in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee are hearing testimony on capital punishment.
