Maryland Democrats Present Legislation Billed as Curbs on Trump

In a challenge to Gov. Larry Hogan, General Assembly Democrats unveiled a package of initiatives Tuesday they billed as a defense of Marylanders’ rights against the actions of President Donald J. Trump.

The measures include expanding the authority of Maryland’s attorney general to take legal action against federal government actions without receiving the governor’s permission. The legislation would free Democratic Attorney General Brian E. Frosh to more aggressively fight Trump administration policies in court.
