When Gov. Larry Hogan put pen to paper and signed the RELIEF Act into law, he triggered a series of maneuvers that will enable hundreds of thousands of state residents to get stimulus payments and many businesses to get tax breaks. The RELIEF Act is the Republican governor’s signature effort of the current General Assembly session.

Lawmakers expanded on the governor’s proposal and the bill won bipartisan support.
