    (a)    (1)    The Administration shall make available to opioid treatment programs monthly transit passes that:

    (c)    On or before December 1, 2021, and on or before December 1 each year thereafter, the Administration, in consultation with participating opioid treatment program providers, shall submit a report to the Governor and, in accordance with § 2–1257 of the State Government Article, the General Assembly on the status of the implementation of the requirements under this section.
