Md. Senate panel debates no-knock warrant limits

February 22, 2021

The Judicial Proceedings Committee is expected to vote Monday to approve the measure, which stops short of ending the use of the warrants as the bill’s sponsor had urged, and send it to the full Senate for its consideration later in the week.
