Despite Hogan Veto Threat, Maryland Senate Approves Paid Sick Time Proposal

A day after Gov. Larry Hogan promised to veto it, the Maryland Senate approved a mandatory paid sick time bill by a veto-proof margin.

The margin of passage sets up another political confrontation with the Republican governor, who on Wednesday described the Senate‘s plan as “terrible” and said it and a similar proposal advanced by House of Delegates were “dead on arrival.”
