On May 4, 2017 Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) approved MD H.B. 974 (2017), concerning protections of personal information. Among other provisions, this bill alters “the circumstances under which a specified business must conduct an investigation and notify specified persons of a specified breach” (see http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/frmMain.aspx?pid=billpage&stab=01&id=hb0974&tab=subject3&ys=2017RS).
Also on the same day, Gov. Hogan approved M.D. H.B. 520 (2017), which “repeal[s] the requirement that a mortgage or deed of trust bear a specified certification that the instrument was prepared by a specified person in order to be recorded” (see http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/frmMain.aspx?id=hb0595&stab=01&pid=billpage&tab=subject3&ys=2017RS).
