MD Lawmakers Back In Session Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Those in favor of raising minimum wage and legalizing marijuana have high hopes this year in Maryland.

But those are just some of the hundreds of bills being talked about before session begins. On Wednesday, lawmakers are back to work and will start debating this year's laundry list, already tallied at more than 200 bills in both the House and Senate.

One bill already pre-filed, Lynette's Law, which would directly address sexual abuse on mental health clients.  Last year, one portion of the law, legalizing criminal background checks for mental health professionals, passed.

But their other bill failed in the Senate. Lobbyists told WMDT in October that they planned to ask for therapist abuse to become a felony, instead of a 4th degree sex offense.
