2022 House Bill 6184: Revise laws to incorporate lessons learned from COVID epidemic
Introduced by Rep. Julie Alexander R-Hanover on June 9, 2022
To revise the law that authorizes the state health department to impose emergency orders in response to an epidemic, by requiring each such order to identify the epidemic, describe how any restrictions on gatherings or procedures will protect the public health, and more. The bill would also require disclosure of any information the state health department has used to justify issuing an emergency order, including the data or statistics used to determine if it is necessary. Such orders could not extend beyond 28 days without legislative consent. This is part of a Republican legislative package revising various laws to incorporate lessons learned from the 2020 coronavirus epidemic. Many of the proposed amendments also limit administrative agency emergency powers unrelated to epidemics.   Official Text and Analysis.
