Gov. Moore asks lawmakers to support bills expanding housing, protecting renters

Maryland Gov. Wes Moore made a pitch to lawmakers Tuesday address the state’s “true housing crises” by passing bills that would allow developers to build more housing units in key areas, as well as grant more protections to renters. The state has both a shortage of available units — either to rent or to buy — and housing costs are too high for many Marylanders, the Democratic governor said. He estimated the state has a shortage of about 96,000 housing units.
