As Maryland Gov. Wes Moore lobbies for his 10 bills, legislators amend, combine and slash at his priorities
Maryland Gov. Wes Moore — two months into an administration that he promised would move boldly, yet cautiously — is both racking up wins and coming up short. The first-time politician entered office in January with ambitious goals like ending child poverty, creating new pathways to public service, and making major investments in transportation infrastructure and education. Now in the homestretch of the annual 90-day lawmaking session in Annapolis, Moore’s first year is likely to show progress in those areas — just not all at the levels he wanted.
