Maryland lawmakers voted Friday to approve a change in state regulations that returns decisions to wear masks in schools to local boards of education. The 17-1 vote by the Administrative, Executive and Legislative Review Committee, followed more than an hour of testimony, some of which included harsh criticisms of state school board officials and lawmakers. The vote by the joint legislative panel comes two days after the Maryland Board of Education voted to rescind emergency regulations requiring the use of facial coverings while in school buildings.
