Gov. O'Malley holds first of three bill-signing events

April 10, 2012

ANNAPOLIS — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley held his first of three scheduled bill-signing events on Tuesday, the day after the legislative session ended.

Among the dozens of bills O’Malley signed into law were three sponsored by members of the Washington County delegation, including:

  • Letting sheriffs and deputy sheriffs in Washington County practice law in a different county. Sen. Christopher B. Shank sponsored the bill.
  • Letting people take their own wine to an establishment that has an alcoholic beverages license, under certain conditions. Sen. Ronald N. Young sponsored the bill.
  • Requiring Washington County to distribute to the town of Williamsport 35 percent of certain payments in lieu of taxes only if they’re from electricity generation facilities in the town. The Washington County delegation sponsored the bill.

None of the local bill sponsors attended on Tuesday.

The two other bill-signings will be held May 2 and 22.
