New Maryland laws took effect yesterday, October 1, 2015! We published a series of posts highlighting a few of the newly enacted laws, but this is just a small sampling of the new laws enacted by the 2015 Legislative Session. A full listing of new laws is available here, courtesy of the Department of Legislative Services (DLS) of the General Assembly of Maryland.
Was there a major issue from the 2015 session that was not covered in this series? The 90 Day Report – A Review of the 2015 Session, published by DLS, includes a hyperlinked list of Major Issues from 2015 such as the budget, education, public safety (body-worn cameras), taxes and voting rights. In addition, we previously covered some changes to family law here, which are effective today.
Can’t find what you’re looking for? DLS publishes a Popular Terms List as a reference for current legislation that is often referred to by the public and media by certain popular terms. Also, the Department of Legislative Services of the General Assembly of Maryland publishes compilations of executive orders.
Do you prefer paper sources? The Law Library’s collection includes a copy of the 2015 Maryland Legislative Review Service, published by LexisNexis, which summarizes the 2015 Acts of the Maryland General Assembly Regular Session and organizes the 2015 Acts by topical headings. In addition, the Law Library’s Maryland collection includes print copies of the current Annotated Code of Maryland.
