CB63-2020 was passed by the Howard County Council on December 7th by a vote of 4-1. Here is a summary of that legislation:
AN ACT providing that County employees, departments and agents shall take, or refrain from taking, specified actions with respect to the immigration status of specified individuals; prohibiting certain discrimination based on immigration status; requiring that certain information related to citizenship, nationality or immigration status be kept confidential; providing a procedure whenever specified provisions may be preempted by other law; requiring specified officials to take actions under certain circumstances; specifying which actions may and may not be taken by certain County departments, officers, and officials during participation on certain task forces; requiring County departments to adopt specified policies and make specified reports; governing the expenditure of certain County resources; and generally relating to human rights in Howard County
This legislation was signed by Howard County Executive Calvin Ball on December 10th.

I expect this committee and issue to generate a lot of discussion in the county.
