ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A legislative panel in Maryland has voted to approve regulations needed to implement the state's sweeping gun-control law, which takes effect next month.

The General Assembly's Joint Administrative, Executive and Legislative Review Committee voted 9-6 on Monday to approve the regulations.

While lawmakers passed the measure earlier this year, the panel still needed to sign off on some specific regulations to implement the law.
