Rule status: Proposed

Agency: DCWP

Comment by date: November 29, 2021

Rule Full Text

LL 80 provides civil penalty relief for small businesses from certain sanitation, health, transportation, consumer affairs, noise control and buildings violations. LL 80 sets fixed penalties at the bottom of existing penalty ranges, lowers existing penalty ceilings (or sometimes sets a lower fixed amount), or lowers existing fixed penalties. In certain instances, LL 80 allows a cure period for a first violation or eliminates the civil penalty for a first violation. LL 80 also repeals several requirements and prohibitions to provide relief for small businesses.

LL 98 increases penalties for certain deceptive and unconscionable business practices prohibited under the Department’s consumer protection law. LL 98 also maintains the current licensing requirement for industrial laundry and industrial laundry delivery services, creates a new subchapter for retail laundry regulations, and clarifies the applicable penalties.
