  • New From The State House

    I hope you and yours are enjoying the summer and staying cool during this heat and humidity!

    I wish to share some news from Governor Larry Hogan. He announced on Monday, June 22, that he has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, so he will immediately start treatment that will last 18 months. It is a very aggressive cancer, so it will require aggressive treatment, but he is expected to make a full recovery though the journey will be difficult. The governor is not afraid of challenges and will keep on working as he is able, but I ask that you keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time.

    Last month, Governor Larry Hogan vetoed six bills that were...
