HOGAN VETOES BILLS: Republican Gov. Larry Hogan vetoed five bills Friday, characterizing some as meddling by the General Assembly and dismissing another as a tax. Three of the vetoes reject plans to increase oversight of the state’s mass transit agency, raise money to replace the Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge in Southern Maryland and increase the amount of electricity derived from renewable sources such as the sun or wind. Senate President Mike Miller, a Prince George’s County Democrat, declined to comment, Erin Cox and Michael Dresser report for the Sun.
