ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Dozens of new laws are taking effect in Maryland this week.

While many of the new laws approved this year take effect in October, some go into effect on Wednesday. One creates a new task force on police body cameras to report by December on the best ways for storing audio and video recordings from police body cameras. Also, a new law will create a position of special education ombudsman for parents who are frustrated with the quality of special education services for their children.

Two other laws will help pay for flood prevention.
