Better Luck Next Year for Bills that Didn't Make it

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The ink is drying on more than 100 bills signed into law on Tuesday, but a number of measures will have to try their luck again next year.

Police accountability was an issue when the legislature convened in January, but many of the roughly two-dozen bills proposed to address it received unfavorable reports.

A person's right to die brought hundreds of people to the Annapolis in support of and opposition to a Death With Dignity bill, but the controversial measure has been scheduled for a summer work session.

A popular bill that would require certain businesses to provide paid sick leave for employees was also left by the wayside.

And Gov. Larry Hogan lost out on his education voucher program and a proposal to give tax relief to small businesses.
