New Laws in Effect as of October 1, 2022
Most laws take effect either immediately following the end of the General Assembly’s conclusion in April or over the summer. A few took effect this past Saturday, October 1st. Here are a few you should be aware of:
-Minimum age to marry was raised from 15 to age 17
-Mandatory increased security for firearms dealers (I voted against and Governor Hogan vetoed due to the one-size-fits all policies in this legislation)
-Move Over, Slow Down when passing a stopped vehicle (was previously just emergency vehicles)
Westminster: MD Route 27 at Main Street Road Closure

This closure is expected to last at least four (4) days with an expected re-opening date of October 25, 2022. During this time period, vehicle traffic will be detoured. Drivers should prepare for some delay when traveling through this area. Additionally, this project will cause partial lane closures at this intersection potentially through October 28, 2022.
