The Assembly declined to adopt special regulations for ride-sharing companies such as Uber, leaving the Public Service Commission with a choice to regulate them like taxicabs or not at all. In the area of craft microbrewing, which has exploded in Maryland, lawmakers declined to lift the cap on the maximum number of barrels a microbrewer can produce. But they did pass a bill that would allow small brew pubs to sell their product at farmers' markets.
