BALTIMORE (AP) — Democratic lawmakers and housing advocates in Maryland are eyeing legislation to extend restrictions on evictions amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The bills are expected to be introduced after the General Assembly convenes next month. They would include a measure to bar all eviction filings other than those that cite an “imminent threat” until April 2022. Other legislation would encourage landlords to seek alternatives before filing for eviction. Democratic Attorney General Brian Frosh said one of his priorities is increasing the filing fee that landlords must pay to begin an eviction.
