On April 22, 2022, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R) signed Senate Bill (SB) 176 into law, strengthening Maryland’s child occupant protection statute.  The law requires children to remain rear facing in a child safety seat until age two or older or until they outgrow the specifications of the safety seat.  To read our April 19, 2022 letter to Governor Hogan on this legislation CLICK HERE.  To read our February 22, 2022 letter to the Maryland House Committee on Environment and Transportation CLICK HERE.
