Maryland SB 82 was enacted into law on June 2, 2021. This bill creates a music therapy license, which will be overseen by the newly expanded Board of Audiologists, Hearing-Aid Dispensers, Speech-Language Pathologists, and Music Therapists.
Congratulations and thank you to the members of the Maryland Task Force (Tatyana Martin, co-chair, Niki Delk Runge, co-chair, CJ Shiloh, Mary D’Amato, and Elizabeth Smith), as well as the bills sponsors Delegate Sheree Sample-Hughes and Senator Malcolm Augustine who all worked tirelessly on this bill through many ups and downs.
Congratulations Maryland music therapists!
