Maryland lawmakers head into their last day of session

ANNAPOLIS  — Maryland lawmakers are heading into the last day of their legislative session with some high-profile bills still unresolved.

The session ends Monday at midnight.

Supporters of expanding the state’s ignition interlock requirements for all drunken drivers are concerned about a push to include a punitive damages provision in the bill. Supporters say that could end the measure’s chances of passing. That’s because the House of Delegates hasn’t moved forward with a separate bill to allow punitive damages against a defendant in a personal injury case with a blood alcohol level of .15 or greater.

Lawmakers also will be working to pass a police reform bill.

A panel of negotiators reached an agreement on a separate criminal justice reform bill Saturday night. It will go before lawmakers for a final vote.
