Governor to sign environmental bills and Phylicia's Law today

Bill-Signing ceremony in Annapolis today

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.


Bills to be signed

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.
