Maryland legislature enters last day, most priorities done
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland lawmakers are entering the last day of their legislative session with most high-profile measures already passed into law.
The General Assembly's 90-day session is scheduled to adjourn Monday at midnight.
Democrats, who control the legislature, and Republican Gov. Larry Hogan already have signed a bipartisan budget deal with $1.86 billion in tax relief over five years for Maryland retirees, small businesses and low-income families.
Lawmakers also have enacted a paid family leave program over the governor's veto.
They also have passed into law a broad measure aimed at slowing climate change, after Hogan said he would let the bill go into law without his signature.
