Gov. Larry Hogan on Wednesday promised to veto paid sick leave proposals advancing in the legislature, deriding the plans as business-killers designed to hurt his re-election campaign.
“If either of these job-killing bills reaches my desk, they are dead on arrival. I will veto them immediately,” Hogan said during a State House news conference. “They are a partisan attempt to put points on the board to use against me in a campaign in 2018.”
