ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has signed into law measures to increase transparency in the criminal justice system and to create a statewide firearms enforcement center to better track gun crimes.
The governor also signed a bill Thursday to extend tax incentives for manufacturers that locate or expand in the state and a measure to restrict the use of toxic “forever chemicals” in food packaging, rugs and carpets.
With 988 set to become the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in July, the governor signed a measure to create a fund to support mental and behavioral health call centers.
