Gov. Wes Moore, in his first act of signing bills into law, officially pushed measures over the finish line that will raise the state minimum wage to $15 ahead of schedule, expand tax credits for families with low incomes and allow more survivors of child sexual abuse to sue those who abused them. Moore’s signature on those and dozens of other bills Tuesday marked the completion of some of the first-year Democratic governor’s top priorities and one, the Child Victims Act, that advocates and lawmakers had pushed for aggressively after years of coming up short.
