As the 2023 Maryland legislative session came to a close Monday, Anne Arundel County lawmakers successfully passed several bills to improve access to behavioral health resources, expand virtual school opportunities and refine police accountability oversight. In the 90-day term, which featured a slate of new delegates and senators in the Maryland General Assembly and a new Democratic governor in Wes Moore, legislators passed several historic bills including gun control legislation, laws setting up a framework for the sale of recreational cannabis and the Child Victims Act, which would allow more survivors of child sexual assault agency to sue those who abused them.
