2024 Legislative Recap

In the days and weeks following the end of the 2024 legislative session, the Maryland Chamber of Commerce government affairs team will review and provide a comprehensive analysis of the legislation relevant to the business community.

We supported 18 pieces of legislation during this year's session, including the Governor's Critical Infrastructure Streamlining Act, the Transparent Government Act, the Keep Our Heroes Home Act, the Economic Competitiveness Act and the Clean Slate Act. Simultaneously, we fought against proposals that would push Maryland further down the ladder of economic competitiveness, successfully opposing 42 bills, with only a few receiving final passage.
