Bills Strengthen Maryland Group Homes

Advocates for the disabled are hopeful that legislation passed by the General Assembly will give Maryland regulators more tools to fix dangerous conditions at state-licensed facilities — such as the one where a 10-year-old Baltimore boy died last year.
The two bills — the most recent of several reforms enacted after a Baltimore Sun investigation into group homes — empower regulators to respond more aggressively when they find problems at such facilities. The reforms are designed to improve how regulators monitor the financial stability and health care quality of state contractors hired to care for disabled adults and children.
