The 2020 session of the Maryland General Assembly was historic in many ways, not the least of which was adjournment after only 70 days due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the news has been completely focused on the impact and responses to this public health crisis. In spite of its early ending, the 2020 session was productive passing good policies that will help Marylanders.
Many significant pieces of legislation were passed by both the House and the Senate and went to the Governor’s desk for his signature. By law, the governor must sign, veto or allow a bill to pass without his signature by May 15. With the exception of the emergency bills, the others are in limbo until that date.
