Maryland law on codes for wind resistance will take effect in October
The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety says that Maryland citizens will be safer due to legislation passed by the legislature and signed into law by Gov. Martin O’Malley. The new law prohibits local jurisdictions from weakening the wind design and windborne debris provisions in the state’s building codes, and will take effect Oct. 1.
