Maryland leaders urge General Assembly to override veto of legislation that would fund state prescription drug board

February 2, 2021

Maryland’s county and city leaders teamed up on Tuesday to urge the General Assembly to override Gov. Larry Hogan’s veto of legislation that would establish a permanent funding source for the Prescription Drug Affordability Board. The Senate voted to override the veto in  January. The House of Delegates is expected to consider a veto override later this month. Hogan vetoed the legislation last year along with 21 other bills due to fiscal concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic. The legislation unanimously passed the Senate and received overwhelming support in the House.
