O'Malley signs local delegation bills

May 09, 2007|by ANDREW SCHOTZ

Gov. Martin O'Malley signed three Washington County delegation bills into law Tuesday.

One bill allows the Washington County Commissioners to borrow up to $80 million to finance the cost of construction, improvement or development projects.

A second adds Washington County to the list of counties in which a probation before judgment ruling in court on charges of selling or furnishing alcohol to minors doesn't bar the liquor board from taking administrative action against the licensee.

The third bill lets up to 20 members of a fire or ambulance company in the county be designated as fire police.

All three bills passed during the 2007 Maryland General Assembly session.

A fourth bill signed Tuesday had another local connection.

Sen. George C. Edwards, R-Garrett/Allegany/Washington, sponsored a bill expanding the hunting license and stamp exemption to children who live on, work on or manage farmland.
