Maryland paid sick leave bill to become law in 30 days after Senate overrides Hogan veto

January 12th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Senate voted Friday to override Gov. Larry Hogan’s veto of a bill requiring employers to provide paid sick leave to hundreds of thousands of Maryland workers. The legislation, which was approved by the House of Delegates on Thursday, becomes law in 30 days. Hogan put up a vigorous fight to pick off a few Democrats in each chamber to sustain his veto. His efforts fell short, however. The Senate voted 30-17 for the override. That was one more vote than the bill received in the Senate last year.
