It’s veto override week in Annapolis. Some of these looming votes we applaud — a bill extending background checks to private sales of rifles and shotguns — some we lament. But the facts are clear. Democratic leaders in the General Assembly say they have counted the votes and are ready to begin moving legislation into law that passed last year with what proved to be veto-proof majorities. One piece of legislation, in particular, has dominated the conversation more any other proposal to come through Annapolis in recent years: the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future.
Our Say: Lawmakers are ready to override Hogan’s vetoes. Now the governor faces a choice.
