ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Maryland already has an official state desert. A state sandwich could be next.

A pre-filed bill in the Maryland General Assembly would make soft-shell crab the official Maryland sandwich.

Sen. Richard Colburn, an Eastern Shore Republican is sponsoring the measure.

It would be the latest Eastern Shore culinary victory in the Maryland State House. In 2008, lawmakers passed legislation to make the multi-layered Smith Island Cake the official state dessert.
