HB 864 prohibits “a person from standing in a State highway or the highway right-of-way in Howard County to solicit money or donations from an occupant of a vehicle; and making the provisions of the Act severable.”
In other words, you can get hit with a $60.00 fine if you break this law.
I wonder how they think someone who has reduced themselves to roadside panhandling is going to come up with sixty bucks to pay the fine.
For their sake I hope the recession is over before the law takes effect on October 1st.
