A new bond requirement has been added to Maryland state legislation. The new law, which is named SB 741/HB 1022, requires debt settlement service providers within the state to acquire a $50,000 surety bond in order to register with the state. The surety bond must be written by a state authorized surety company and debt settlement service providers must have one in order to operate legally.
