ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland General Assembly has passed a pandemic relief measure that will deliver more than $1 billion in tax relief and economic stimulus for low-income families and small businesses.

Lawmakers gave the bill final approval on Friday. The legislature passed the bill after the House withdrew provisions that would have expanded relief to families who use Individual Tax Identification Numbers instead of Social Security numbers.

Critics of the proposal said it would have steered relief to undocumented immigrants.

Leaders in the legislature say they plan to approve separate legislation next week for people who use ITIN numbers.
