How to Follow Maryland Legislation
The web has made it much easier for the “average citizen” to follow legislation in Maryland. Here is how to find a bill if you know the bill number:
- Go to the Maryland General Assembly’s website
- The second button on this page links to “Bill Information and Status”. Click that.
- Enter the bill number – don’t forget to state whether it is a House Bill (for example, “HB1234”) or a Senate Bill (“SB123”). Click Submit Query.
- This will bring up the bill summary. There, you can find its status or click on the bill number to see the full language of the bill.
A quick graphic showing how a bill becomes a law is on the Catholic Charities webpage.
