ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is scheduled to sign environmental bills from his own legislative package including measures to increase the state's so-called flush tax and limit where new residential septic systems can be installed.
O'Malley is scheduled to put his signature on legislation passed earlier this year during a ceremony Wednesday afternoon.
In addition to the environmental laws, the governor will also sign a bill designed to improve coordination between law enforcement and community groups when a child disappears.
The bill is named after Phylicia Barnes, a North Carolina teen who disappeared in 2010 while visiting Baltimore and was later found dead.

O'Malley will also sign legislation making it illegal for employers to ask their applicants or workers to hand over log-in information for social media websites like Facebook.
