The General Assembly convened on January 14, 2015. Equality Maryland has three bills that we hope to get passed during the 90 day session.
A bill that would allow transgender people to change their Maryland birth certificate when it’s right for them.
A bill that would ensure equal insurance coverage for same-sex married couples in the area of in-vitro fertilization.
A bill that would ensure that when parents separate, the best interests of the children will be the criteria to determine a non-legal (de facto) parent’s rights and responsibilities.
Other bills of interest to Equality Maryland:
Senate Bill 40: The Healthy Working Families Act: This bill would require specified employers to to provide employees with earned sick and safe leave.
Status: Senate Bill 40 will have a hearing in the Senate Finance Committee on February 2, 2015.
EQMD Position: Support
