A legislative work group established to assess data collection and policies of Maryland state’s attorney’s offices met for the first time Wednesday, but will have two months to provide recommendations on what information prosecutors should make public. The group co-chaired by Sen. Charles Sydnor (D-Baltimore County) and Del. David Moon (D-Montgomery) was created in 2022 by Senate Bill 763, which was part of a criminal justice reform package passed after the killing of George Floyd by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
