Proposed rule could limit the number of bills senators can file
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Senate bills may become a hot commodity in Maryland if a rule proposed this week is enacted.
The Senate Rules Committee is planning to meet Friday to consider limiting the number of bills any one senator can propose in the yearly 90-day session of the state’s General Assembly.
The busiest senators have proposed more than 40 bills in past years. Sen. Michael Hough, R-Frederick and Carroll, wants to cut that to no more than 20.
