MD Lawmarkers pass 2 consumer bills

Two consumer protection bills passed the Maryland legislature by the time it adjourned on April 8. Later the governor signed them. The Maryland Online Data Privacy Act of 2024 (SB541) prohibits companies from collecting online data unrelated to the transaction and giving away or trading personal data. Another bill (SB0539) would eliminate surprise fees during ticket transactions and ban speculative tickets.
