ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Wes Moore this week presided over the Moore-Miller Administration’s fourth bill signing. The governor signed legislation pertaining to abortion, trans healthcare, and adult-use cannabis.
“Today, we further strengthened our leave no one behind vision by protecting individual freedoms, solidifying reproductive rights, expanding access to healthcare, and creating an adult-use cannabis market that directly benefits those that were disproportionately affected by the war on drugs,” said Gov. Moore. “Here in Maryland we are committed to righting the wrongs of the past and protecting the rights of all Marylanders in the future. As long as I am governor, I will fight with everything I’ve got to ensure we’re creating a safe, equitable, and prosperous home for every Marylander.”
“The legislation signed today by Governor Moore will protect the health, wellbeing, and rights of all Marylanders,” said Lt. Gov. Miller. “While other states are dead set on ripping away reproductive rights and attempting to erase the existence of trans and nonbinary individuals, we’re doing the opposite: We’re making Maryland a state that is welcoming, inclusive, and that safeguards the rights of all people.”
Included among Governor Moore’s pieces of legislation signed this week are:
- S.B. 798, Declaration of Rights – Right to Reproductive Freedom
- S.B. 859, Reproductive Health Protection Act
- S.B. 786, Health – Reproductive Health Services
- S.B. 341, Public Senior Higher Education Institutions – Reproductive Health Services Plans
- S.B. 460, Trans Health Equity Act
- S.B. 516, Cannabis Reform
