The Maryland General Assembly is considering a bill that would “give 40 small businesses up to $3,000 per year to hire interns.”

According to the Baltimore Business Journal:

[T]he Maryland Technology Internship Program would give 40 small businesses up to $3,000 a year to hire interns. The bill (HB1317) to create the program was approved by the state House of Delegates and is being considered by the Senate. If approved, Gov. Martin O’Malley would need to authorize funding for the program, estimated at $190,000 in fiscal 2015.

Recruiting and hiring skilled tech workers is a challenge for Baltimore city startups, as Technical.ly discussed in its February podcast on hiring. The Maryland Technology Internship Program would seek to create a pathway for impending or recent college graduates to find work with the region’s tech companies, something national groups such as Venture for America are already doing by placing college graduates into two-year positions with several of this city’s startup companies.
