Governor Larry Hogan Scheduled To Sign 4th Howard County Delegation Bill Into Law

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is scheduled to sign more bills into law today (April 30, 2019)…and one of those bills is from the Howard County Delegation: HB1405 – Howard County – Transfer Tax – Collection by Director of Finance Ho. Co. 30-19.

This would make four of the seven bills passed signed into law:

  • HB0590 – Howard County Board of Education – Election of Members Ho. Co. 01–19
  • HB1306 – Howard County – Howard County Housing Commission – Subsidiary Entities Ho. Co. 26-19
  • HB1406 – Howard County – Department of Correction – Authority to Establish Programs Ho. Co. 29-19
  • HB1405 – Howard County – Transfer Tax – Collection by Director of Finance Ho. Co. 30-19

The three remaining bills not signed (or scheduled to be signed) yet include:

  • HB0869 – Howard County – Alcoholic Beverages – Marketplace License Ho. Co. 06–19
  • HB1166 – Howard County – Authority to Impose Fees for Use of Disposable Bags Ho. Co. 04-19
  • HB1409 – Howard County – School Facilities Surcharge – Rates Ho. Co. 03-19

You can keep track with the latest on all bills HERE. I am still holding out hope that Governor Hogan will veto HB1166 (The Howard County Bag Tax – a bill that would allow our County Council to bring forward a punitive tax on shoppers here in Howard County).

There are two additional dates scheduled for bill signings by the Governor:

  • May 13, 2019 – 11:00 AM
  • May 23, 2019 – 10:00 AM

Stay tuned…as additional bills are signed or vetoed…I will update in future posts.
