WEAA's Julius White has the local news: the Howard County council is considering 'sanctuary' legislation. If approved, the bill would mean that the county would refuse to cooperate with the federal government on immigration issues. And, with a surge of fire deaths at the end of 2016, the Baltimore Fire Department spent the New Year's weekend handing out free smoke alarms to anyone without them.
