Maryland bill would restrict spam phone calls

Anyone who has a phone could arguably consider Senate Bill 90 one of the most popular bills under consideration in Session 2023. The Stop the Spam Calls Act of 2023 would prohibit telephone solicitations that always seem to come at the worst time. Now, for the first time, Maryland state lawmakers are close to doing something about the calls. The bill unanimously passed the House, and the Senate is expected to follow suit this week. The bill is so popular, the Senate put a final vote on hold until the names of 19 other lawmakers can be added as co-sponsors.
