MD Gov. Hogan vetoes minimum wage hike, school start bill

The public union contrived $15 minimum wage gambit has more to do with gifting public employees a windfall without negotiation. Legislators must give taxpayers a full accounting of the cost and the eventual tax increases to be foisted on Maryland taxpayers before any legislation is enacted. A little transparency here would be helpful, more importantly, required.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) – Gov. Larry Hogan has vetoed a measure to raise Maryland’s minimum wage to $15, as well as a measure to give local school boards the ability to decide whether school starts before or after Labor Day.

The Republican governor announced the vetoes on Wednesday. He also vetoed a bill that would remove regulatory authority over alcohol, tobacco, and gasoline from the Maryland comptroller’s office.


Hogan says the minimum wage increase would hurt the state’s economy. He says the other two bills are “politically motivated legislation.”
