TOWSON, Md. —The Baltimore County Council this week unanimously voted for a bill that will protect veterans from discrimination in housing and hiring practices.
The bill, which was introduced by Councilman Todd Crandell (R-Dundalk), will also enable veterans to be a preferred housing class.
Crandell said the bill removes restrictions and allows property owners and sellers to offer housing as “Veterans only.”
Crandell said the bill is designed to help veterans deal with the oftentimes enormous challenges in transitioning to civilian life. He added that 55,000 of the approximate 500,000 veterans in Maryland reside in Baltimore County.
