Md. Republicans revive bills to fight violent crime

March 4, 2021

House and Senate Republicans hope to resurrect a package of bills designed to reduce violent crime similar to legislation killed in the House of Delegates one year ago. With half of the 90-day session over, Republicans say now is the time to focus on issues related to violent crime and getting tough with repeat violent offenders, particularly in Baltimore. The push comes as the Senate wrapped up work on a nine-bill package aimed at reforming law enforcement oversight across the state — a top priority for House Speaker Adrienne Jones and Senate President Bill Ferguson.
