I have been dating my boyfriend for a year and a half and the entire time my mom has known about it. She hasn't always been happy about it but she has known and now all of a sudden she is super mad about it. And I don't understand why there is no abuse or anything bad about him or us. I was wondering if there was any she could get him into trouble with law.
Yes, there is a way she can get him into trouble with the law, and that would be to report a crime. The age of consent in your state is 16, and you did not mention sex, so it probably would not be for having sex, but for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Can she get him in trouble? Possibly, but would depend on many factors. It's not illegal to date, but there are other potential ways he could face criminal charges. She could probably find other ways to make his life uncomfortable. Better find a way to work it out.
