The Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee last week approved legislation to make it easier for Maryland businesses to anticipate, manage and comply with regulatory changes by a vote of 8-1. The bill, SB 449, would establish quarterly effective dates for nonemergency regulations.
The Maryland Chamber supports the bill because it would streamline the regulatory process and give business more predictability regarding the effective dates of regulations. The bill would lessen the administrative burden on small businesses, which are the engine of Maryland’s economy.
Similar legislation was passed unanimously by both houses last year, but the session ended before the opposite house votes could be completed. For more information, contact Mathew Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
