A special legislative session will not convene to work on gun violence legislation during the interim break.
According to a WBAL news report, Governor Moore will not call a special session for legislators to work on gun violence legislation. From the interview:
“I also know we don’t have to wait for a special session in order to address something that is the number one priority for this administration,” Moore said.
Gov. Moore reiterated in the article that his administration is working to stop the flow of illegal guns in the state and drug trafficking. The dual strategy recognizes the rate at which these two crimes are committed concurrently. This announcement comes following a June launch of the administration’s new vision to address public safety. The initiative was deployed last month and has a substantial focus on combating youth violence.
