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).  This is a good bill.  In part, the Liberty Preservation Act reads:

A PERSON OR GOVERNMENTAL ENTITY MAY NOT KNOWINGLY AID AN AGENCY OF THE UNITED STATES IN THE DETENTION OF A PERSON IN ACCORDANCE WITH §§ 1021 AND 1022 OF THE FEDERAL NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2012.
