Maryland’s governor and legislative leaders will sign dozens of bills into law on Monday, including measures to ease health care enrollment and raise the legal age to buy tobacco products in the state…

…Another bill would establish the Maryland Easy Enrollment Health Insurance Program to let Marylanders start health insurance enrollment by checking a box on their annual state income tax returns. The program is expected to help tens of thousands of Marylanders obtain health insurance, which will expand the pool of consumers who are insured and bring down premium costs for other enrollees.
