Gov. Wes Moore will advocate next session for state and private employers to practice preferential hiring for military spouses and for the state to offer more military leave to its employees serving in the National Guard or reserves. At a news conference Wednesday at the State House, Moore also proclaimed 2024 as “the year for military families.” The policies are the first that Moore, a Democrat heading into his second year in office, has unveiled as part of his legislative agenda for the 90-day session that begins Jan. 10. He’s expected to sponsor around a dozen bills.
