MD: Maryland House GOP to push for state income tax cut, violent offender registry

[baltimoresun.com – 1/25/19]

Republican leaders in Maryland’s House of Delegates on Friday released their legislative priorities for 2019, including a state income tax cut, a registry for violent repeat offenders, and single-member districts in the General Assembly.

Flanked by fellow Republicans, Anne Arundel Del. Nic Kipke, the House’s minority leader, and Baltimore County Del. Kathy Szeliga, the minority whip, also said they would push for authority for greater use of so-called “special police” in Maryland in an effort to try to keep schools safer.

Kipke said that Republican delegates represent about 2 million Marylanders, and their constituents expect them to press for change, just as Democrats’ constituents do.

He called the GOP proposals “common sense” and “nonpartisan” ideas.

The four priorities of the House GOP leadership are:

The “Murder and Repeat Violent Offender Registry Act of 2019,” which would establish a searchable, public registry of violent offenders, modeled after Maryland’s Sex Offender Registry. It would require people convicted of murder to register for a period of 10 years following the completion of their sentence. In addition, defendants convicted of multiple violent crimes would be required to register for a 10-year period. “These are folks who’ve done really bad things to others,” Kipke said.
