Time running out for Maryland Lawmakers

April 1st, 2019 by WCBC Radio

As Maryland’s lawmakers head into the final days of their annual session, they have plenty of items left on their to-do list: reforming the University of Maryland Medical System board, settling how to pay for increased education spending and deciding whether to issue bonds to improve the Laurel Park racetrack.

Those issues are expected to be among the most hotly debated before the General Assembly adjourns its 90-day session at midnight April 8.

“A lot of the work gets done right here at the end,” Gov. Larry Hogan told reporters Friday. “There’s a whole lot of work left to be done.”

Hogan has found himself on the short end of many decisions by the legislature. Few of the Republican governor’s priority bills have moved forward and lawmakers have voted to override the three vetoes he’s made so far.
