legitimate concerns of jury safety, tampering, or undue harassment. See
                                                                                                                          [11-14-43]
United States v. Deitz, 577 F.3rd 672 (6th Cir. 2009); United States v.
Quinones, 511 F.3d 289 (2nd Cir. 2007). When dealing with the issues of
juror security or tampering, courts have considered a mix of five factors in
deciding whether such information may be shielded: (1) the defendant’s
involvement in organized crime, (2) the defendant’s participation in a group
with the capacity to harm jurors, (3) the defendant’s past attempts to interfere
with the judicial process, (4) the potential that, if convicted, the defendant will
suffer a lengthy incarceration, and (5) extensive publicity that could enhance
the possibility that jurors’ names would become public and expose them to
intimidation or harassment. See United States v. Ochoa-Vasquez, 428 F.3rd
1015 (11th Cir. 2005); United States v. Ross, 33 F.3rd 1507 (11th Cir. 1994).
Although the possibility of a lengthy incarceration is a factor for the court to
consider the court should not shield that information on that basis alone. In
particularly high profile cases where strong public opinion about a pending
case is evident, the prospect of undue harassment, not necessarily involving
juror security or any deliberate attempt at tampering, may also be of concern.
 [(d)] (e) Examination and Challenges for Cause
   (1) Examination
       The trial judge may permit the parties to conduct an
examination of qualified jurors or may conduct the examination after
considering questions proposed by the parties. If the judge conducts
the examination, the judge may permit the parties to supplement the
examination by further inquiry or may submit to the jurors additional
questions proposed by the parties. The jurors’ responses to any
examination shall be under oath. On request of any party, the judge
shall direct the clerk to call the roll of the array and to request each
qualified juror to stand and be identified when called.
   (2) Challenges for Cause
        A party may challenge an individual qualified juror for cause.
A challenge for cause shall be made and determined before the jury is
sworn, or thereafter for good cause shown.
 [(e)] (f) Peremptory Challenges
          Before the exercise of peremptory challenges, the trial judge
shall designate those individuals on the jury list who remain qualified
after examination. The number designated shall be sufficient to
provide the required number of sworn jurors, including any
alternates, after allowing for the exercise of peremptory challenges
pursuant to Rule 4-313. The judge shall at the same time prescribe
the order to be followed in selecting individuals from the list.
 [(f)] (g) [Impanelled] Impaneled Jury
   (1) [Impanelling] Impaneling
        The individuals to be [impanelled] impaneled as sworn jurors,
including any alternates, shall be called from the qualified jurors
remaining on the jury list in the order previously designated by the
trial judge and shall be sworn.
   (2) Oath; Functions, Powers, Facilities, and Privileges
        All sworn jurors, including any alternates, shall take the same
oath and, until discharged from jury service, have the same functions,
powers, facilities, and privileges.
   (3) Discharge of Jury Member
        At any time before the jury retires to consider its verdict, the
trial judge may replace any jury member whom the trial judge finds
to be unable or disqualified to perform jury service with an alternate
in the order of selection set under section (e). When the jury retires

                                                             Emergency Regulations
Under State Government Article, §10-111(b), Annotated Code of Maryland, an agency may petition the Joint Committee on Administrative,
Executive, and Legislative Review (AELR), asking that the usual procedures for adopting regulations be set aside because emergency conditions
exist. If the Committee approves the request, the regulations are given emergency status. Emergency status means that the regulations become
effective immediately, or at a later time specified by the Committee. After the Committee has granted emergency status, the regulations are
published in the next available issue of the Maryland Register. The approval of emergency status may be subject to one or more conditions,
including a time limit. During the time the emergency status is in effect, the agency may adopt the regulations through the usual promulgation
process. If the agency chooses not to adopt the regulations, the emergency status expires when the time limit on the emergency regulations ends.
When emergency status expires, the text of the regulations reverts to its original language.

                                                          Promulgation of Regulations
    An agency wishing to adopt, amend, or repeal regulations must first publish in the Maryland Register a notice of proposed action, a
  statement of purpose, a comparison to federal standards, an estimate of economic impact, an economic impact on small businesses, a notice
  giving the public an opportunity to comment on the proposal, and the text of the proposed regulations. The opportunity for public comment
  must be held open for at least 30 days after the proposal is published in the Maryland Register.
    Following publication of the proposal in the Maryland Register, 45 days must pass before the agency may take final action on the
  proposal. When final action is taken, the agency must publish a notice in the Maryland Register. Final action takes effect 10 days after the
  notice is published, unless the agency specifies a later date. An agency may make changes in the text of a proposal. If the changes are not
  substantive, these changes are included in the notice of final action and published in the Maryland Register. If the changes are substantive,
  the agency must repropose the regulations, showing the changes that were made to the originally proposed text.
    Proposed action on regulations may be withdrawn by the proposing agency any time before final action is taken. When an agency
  proposes action on regulations, but does not take final action within 1 year, the proposal is automatically withdrawn by operation of law,
  and a notice of withdrawal is published in the Maryland Register.

   The following is a list of handguns manufactured after January 1, 1985 that have received final approval by the Handgun Roster Board and
that are not otherwise prohibited by law. Manufacturers are listed alphabetically. Be advised that the Handgun Roster has been amended in
accordance with Senate Bill 619, Chapter 456 of the Laws of Maryland, effective June 1, 1994, which prohibits the sale of certain assault pistols
in the State of Maryland. Please consult the law or Firearms Bulletin 94-1, which is available from the Maryland State Police Licensing
Division, for more information on assault pistols and Senate Bill 619’s prohibition on certain detachable magazines with a capacity of more than
20 rounds of ammunition.
   It is unlawful to manufacture for distribution or sale or to sell or offer for sale in Maryland any handgun manufactured after January 1, 1985
that is not officially on the Handgun Roster, except for the manufacture of prototype models required for design, development, testing, and
approval by the Board. Neither the State of Maryland nor any agency, officer, or employee of the State assumes any liability for injuries caused
by any handgun on the Handgun Roster.

   The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA), the State agency that owns, finances, operates and maintains Maryland’s toll facilities,
proposed on June 2, 2011, increasing toll rates for its toll facilities. The proposed toll rates would be phased in as follows:




                 1
                   E-ZPass Maryland accounts with properly mounted transponder only.
                 2
                   Uniform 70% discount off the two-axle cash/base rate (65% effective July 1, 2013).
                 3
                   Cash tolls are the base rate for each vehicle/axle class.
                 4
                   Cash/E-ZPass tolls for vehicles with three or more axles are based on the two-axle base rate times the appropriate multiplier
                    rounded up to the nearest dollar.
                 5
                   A Video Toll rate is assessed when a driver travels through a toll plaza without a valid E-ZPass or cash payment or travels
                    the ICC without a valid E-ZPass.
                 6
                   E-ZPass monthly account fee and transponder cost would apply.

       Connector (ICC)/ MD 200.
    Eliminate the Shoppers Program at the Bay Bridge.
    Eliminate the ticket programs at the Hatem Bridge.
