Sen. Ferguson outlines amendments to remove 10 p.m. curfew from bill targeting ‘The Block’

March 7, 2022

Maryland legislators have amended a bill to remove a proposed 10 p.m. curfew for all businesses on “The Block” in Baltimore, instead requiring establishments to submit security plans to the city’s Liquor License Board for approval and install surveillance cameras outside. During a Senate committee hearing Friday, the bill’s main sponsor, Senate President Bill Ferguson, said the proposed amendment to remove the mandatory curfew from Senate Bill 222 came after discussions with businesses on “The Block,” a section of East Baltimore Street and Custom House Avenue downtown with several adult entertainment establishments.
