Senate delays debate on transit recording

The Maryland Senate delayed its debate on whether to restrict audio recording on public buses and trains until Tuesday.

Several senators and local transit agencies have raised questions about the bill, spurring the drafting of amendments. Senators agreed on Thursday to bump debate a few days to allow time for amendments to be written and for further research on the bill.

The issue first came to light in 2012, when the Maryland Transit Administration began installing audio recording equipment on buses.

Sen. Robert A. Zirkin, chairman of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, said he hoped issues could be worked out by Tuesday.

"We're going to attempt to work with each of the counties," he said.

Similar bills failed in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
