Business Regulations & Operations

Our policy focus on legislative and regulatory issues for Maryland businesses

Our focus: Business Regulations & Operations 

We address regulatory issues affecting daily operational activities and support legislation that allows market force principles to work in the state’s economy.   

Key Issues Include

  • Modifications to corporations and associations law (by-laws, board of directors' structure/authority)
  • Regulatory expansion over general business practices

Related Policy Priorities & Anticipated Issues for 2024

  • Regulatory Reform: Regulatory reform remains an important component to attracting and retaining businesses. It is critically important that the administration continue to remove red tape and job-killing regulations.
  • Procurement Reform: Comprehensive procurement reform is necessary to address a system that is notoriously cumbersome and often leads to a lack of competition among service providers. To provide consistency and uniformity in the procurement process across all levels of government, we support state procurement mirroring federal procurement laws when possible.
  • Antitrust: We oppose changes to state antitrust laws and regulations, such as new premerger notification requirements and changes to pro-competitive mergers and acquisitions, that would place Maryland businesses at a competitive disadvantage to those in other states.
