Governor Larry Hogan has blasted Baltimore City leaders who approved a bill that was fast-tracked to lower the required years of service to qualify for a pension. The measure lowered the number of years of service by city officials to qualify for a pension from 12 to eight years. The bill was introduced and passed by the City Council in about three weeks. It passed Monday night. Governor Hogan says the city council should work on problems facing residents instead of helping each other earn a pension sooner. Supporters say the move resulted from passage of a measure this month that set term limits for council members.
