A proposal from Maryland Attorney General Anthony Brown to prohibit price gouging during a state of emergency has passed both General Assembly chambers and is awaiting a signature from Gov. Wes Moore. The 90-day legislative session is scheduled to conclude April 10, and Moore, a Democrat, is expected to begin signing bills the following day.
