The Maryland General Assembly adjourned Monday night after its ninety-day session for 2017. Here is the Baltimore Sun's summary of highlights of the good, the bad and the ugly that was passed during this session.
Some really bad or just plain silly legislation was passed. Some of this activity was more motivated by the desire of some "progressive" Democrats to feel good about themselves standing up to the Trump Administration than by a serious intent to achieve practical results for Maryland residents.
Some really good news is that the dangerous push for assisted suicide failed to even come to the floor in either chamber again this year. Also, the TRUST Act (aka state sanctuary bill) passed the House of Delegates but was dropped without a vote in the Senate after public outrage arose over the rape case at Rockville HS where the alleged assailants are illegal immigrants.
