SB 41 – Vehicle Laws – Driving While License is Suspended – Prison Sentence Repeal
Repeal the prison sentence for driving with a suspended license.

The current law triggers another provision in Maryland law that allows for the defendant to request a Public Defender. As a result, the court system, and the Public Defenders office, is struggling to keep pace with its current workload. By repealing this provision, traffic could will be more efficient and save on redundant taxpayer services.
