Democratic leaders in the Maryland Senate are proposing to tack on hundreds of millions of dollars more in pandemic financial aid to Gov. Larry Hogan’s $1 billion pandemic relief plan. The Senate’s “Recovery Now” plan runs a wide gamut of priorities: sending millions to food banks and fire departments; wiping out utility and rental debt for a few thousand families; awarding grants for businesses, artists and nonprofits; paying $1,000 to tens of thousands of people stuck in limbo in the unemployment system; restoring buses and trains to pre-pandemic service levels; and funding “wellmobiles” to administer doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
