Gov. Larry Hogan’s executive order to start school after Labor Day continues to roil Maryland politics, reversing traditional partisan roles and on Wednesday exposing a new vein of controversy.
During the first Board of Public Works meeting since he announced the order last week, state Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp turned to Hogan on Wednesday morning and flatly called the move an “abuse of executive power.”
“It was a misuse of authority,” said Kopp, a Democrat who serves on the three-member panel with the Republican governor. “We’ll see how it plays out.”
