Democratic-Led Maryland General Assembly Prepares to Respond to Trump Administration

Democrats in Maryland are looking for ways to use this year’s General Assembly session to protect the legacy of President Barack Obama and blunt the impact of sweeping changes they fear the Trump administration will usher in.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, a Democrat, said he is ready to do battle after Republican President-elect Donald J. Trump is inaugurated Friday in Washington.

“We’re going to be playing defense,” Miller said. “We’re not going to stop progress for anybody.”
