ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is highlighting COVID-19 recovery, as well as proposals to battle violent crime, send tax relief to residents and boost support for the police in his last State of the State speech.

The term-limited Republican who is in his last year as Maryland’s chief executive, also emphasized the need for bipartisanship during the state's legislative session.

The governor gave his eighth and final State of the State speech from the Old Senate Chamber, where General George Washington came before Congress to resign his commission as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army in 1783.
