As of this weekend, LEOBR reform legislation (SB566/HB968) is still stuck in both the Senate and House committees without an up or down vote.  Please continue to advocate for police reforms!  Visit our email alert, featuring links to  the ACLU MD email form to Maryland legislative leadership as well as individual (rewriteable) form emails and phone numbers for Montgomery County delegates and Senators on the relevant committees.
