March 23, 2021

The Senate gave final passage to more than 30 bills on Monday, including measures to guide the state’s COVID-19 response, remove Maryland’s governor from the parole process, and allow counties to implement progressive income tax brackets. The chamber unanimously approved a $152.5 million emergency measure that would require the Maryland Department of Health and local health departments to devise a two-year coronavirus response and vaccination plan by April 1, and bolster the response to future public health emergencies by establishing a public health job corps and health infrastructure modernization workgroup, among other efforts.
