NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland saw several significant victories for reproductive freedom during the 2017 legislative session, and successfully fought back anti-choice bills that would restrict the right to choose in Maryland. The state legislature remains nominally pro-choice, but we hope to deepen our coalition work across the state to begin passing a true pro-active, pro-choice agenda in the 2018 session.
Keeping Track of the Maryland General Assembly
January 10th to April 9th
The Maryland General Assembly website has many great resources if you are interested in following its work over the 90 day session, including the following:
- The general schedule is available here.
- You can look up legislation and track its progress here. Every bill introduced by the bill introduction deadline is guaranteed a hearing and before the hearing, a fiscal and policy note about the bill will be published.
- You can view the Committee Schedules here.
- Committee hearings can be watched online.
Check out the bills we are advocating for or against (and sometimes just monitoring) during the 2018 Legislative Session below:
We expect the final status of these bills to be posted on our tracker soon.
We are holding two webinars about the 2018 Maryland General Assembly on the 11th and 18th of April. You can sign up for them here.
