HB 558, the Maryland Liberty Preservation Act of 2013, sponsored by Delegate Dwyer and co-sponsored by Delegates Fisher, Glass, Impallaria, Kipke, McComas, McConkey, McDermott, McDonough, Smigiel, and Stocksdale, seeks to nullify certain sections of the 2012 federal National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
