Baltimore City House Delegate Caylin Young proposed a series of bills in Annapolis as part of what he’s calling a “progressive approach to public safety” for the state of Maryland.
Young was joined at a Wednesday press conference by fellow delegates and other elected leaders from Baltimore City to talk about the legislative package.
Some of the measures included creation of a gun violence victim relocation program, ensuring cannabis use is no longer considered a parole violation, and establishing a work readiness program for people who are struggling to find work because of felony convictions.
Another bill would create a new statewide crime rewards fund related to murder cases. It would supplement the city’s existing Metro Crime Stoppers program, which maxes out at $8,000.
