The Prince George’s County Council unanimously passed a bill Tuesday to tighten restrictions on teen and adult dance halls throughout the county.
The measure, which was introduced by Councilwoman Karen Toles (D-Dist. 7) of Suitland, increases dance hall license fees from $200 to $1,000, requires dance halls to submit evacuation and safety plans prior to receiving a permit and explicitly prohibits establishments from allowing dancing between 2 and 11 a.m.
The bill also allows police to conduct background checks on individuals wishing to obtain or renew dance hall licenses and gives police and firefighters authority to suspend or revoke the licenses of establishments that commit safety or noise violations.
Prince George’s County Police Chief Mark Magaw welcomed the bill.

Prince George's County, Maryland judges are tired of complaints that photo enforcement citations are inaccurate or otherwise invalid.
To speed proceedings on "speed camera day" when automated citation cases are heard, at least one judge is cautioning motorists not to bother attempting to prove their innocence, regardless of the merit of their argument.
"This is a speed camera violation session," District Judge Jean S. Baron said on November 9. "The only defense the court is going to accept is if you were not the driver of the vehicle and you have the name and the address of the person who was driving and you present that to the court under oath, I will accept that as a defense. Please don't tell me that you know you couldn't have been going that fast or there's something wrong with the equipment."
