Maryland Gov. Hogan signs bill sending $577 million to state’s historically Black universities
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan — who previously said $200 million was sufficient to settle a lawsuit involving the state’s historically Black universities — put his signature Wednesday on a law that will spend nearly triple that amount on the schools. With the presidents of the state’s four historically Black colleges peering over his shoulder during a ceremony at Bowie State University, Hogan’s action marked the opening of a final chapter in a 15-year-legal journey.
