A bill to control panhandling in Allegany County was filed Friday by Delegate Kevin Kelly. The Cumberland Times News reports that Kelly introduced the legislation at the behest of Allegany County Sheriff Craig Robertson, who has been concerned about a spike in panhandling in the area. Robertson was responding to complaints from the public. The existing law makes it tough for the sheriff and his deputies to do anything about the problem of people asking for money.
