GOVERNOR LETS SOME BILLS BECOME LAW WITHOUT HIS SIGNATURE

Governor Larry Hogan has vetoed a number of bills passed by the General Assembly session, but he’s allowing others to become law without his signature. Among those that will be taking effect is a measure to ban ghost guns. Hogan says it’s a positive step toward stemming the tide of violent crime but does not contain penalties for those who actually pull the trigger. A climate action bill accelerating Maryland’s shift away from fossil fuels will also become law without the governor’s signature.
