Hogan signs two more bills into law

April 1st, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Gov. Larry Hogan held a brief ceremony Friday morning to sign two financial bills into law.

The ceremony with House Speaker Michael E. Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller lasted less than two minutes, with each politician quickly signing the documents.

"Let's get back to work," Hogan said at the conclusion. He did not speak with reporters.

One bill frees up nearly $20 million in state money to help local school districts pay their share toward teachers' retirement pensions.

The state has been shifting the responsibility of teacher pensions to the counties for the past several years. Last year, lawmakers set aside nearly $20 million to help school districts, but Hogan refused to release the money.
