The Maryland Senate has approved a measure that would create a statewide ban on the intentional release of balloons into the atmosphere.
The Senate voted 38-8 on Tuesday for the measure.
The bill creates a civil penalty of up to $250 per violation by an organization or a person who is at least 13 years old. Supporters of the measure say it’s needed to stop littering.
