BILLS I WILL INTRODUCE or SUPPORT
- Tax Exemption for Military Pay (active & retired)
I plan to keep up the pressure and keep gaining momentum on the issues that matter. It's never easy being a Republican in Annapolis, but it's no worse than being a Marine on an Air Force base!
JOBS ARE THE ISSUE, TAXES ARE THE PROBLEM, SPENDING IS THE CAUSE
You can expect me to work to keep taxes down, spending on the priorities, and protect your rights - including your job. The St. Mary's Delegation is working like a Swiss watch on local issues. We may not approve everything the commissioners asked for, but I am confident we will deliver on every local bill we submit.
BILLS I EXPECT TO OPPOSE
Democrats required Gov. Hogan to propose Fracking regulations. He proposed the toughest regs in the US (maybe the world), but they rejected it.
THE BIG FIGHTS
State revenue estimates are down by almost $400 million, eating up the projected surplus. This will demand serious leadership: setting priorities and making decisions between things we have to do, need to do, or just want to do. No doubt there will be more than the usual tax increases proposed.
Last year's HB1013 (a.k.a Road Kill Bill) regulations are unresolved. The Governor wants a full repeal, Democrats want new regs.
As President Trump enters the White House an Obamacare repeal will be at the top of the dance card. How that is done will have a major effect on Maryland with MedicAid funding.
Stand by for Heavy Seas!

|Governor Hogan Announces 2017 Student Debt and Tuition Relief Initiative, Investments in Higher Education|
January 10, 2017
ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today announced the administration’s 2017 Student Debt and Tuition Relief Initiative, as well as targeted investments in higher education. Governor Hogan made the announcement at the University of Maryland, College Park, where he was joined by Maryland Secretary of Higher Education James Fielder and Maryland Secretary of Housing and Community Development Ken Holt; as well as University of System Maryland Chancellor Dr. Robert Caret; University of Maryland, College Park President Dr. Wallace Loh and the University’s Board of Regents; University of Maryland University College President Dr. Javier Miyares; St. Mary’s College President Dr. Tuajuanda Jordan; Morgan State University President Dr. David Wilson; and Maryland Association of Community Colleges Executive Director Dr. Bernie Sadusky.
The governor’s proposal includes legislation to make student debt interest payments tax-deductible for all Marylanders earning less than $200,000 per year, funding to cap tuition growth at Maryland colleges and universities at a maximum of two percent, and targeted investments in priority projects at Maryland’s higher education institutions.
“Having a college education is more important now than ever before, but the harsh reality many face today is that earning a college degree often goes hand-in-hand with accumulating crippling college debt,” said Governor Hogan. “We believe that our new Student Debt and Tuition Relief Initiatives will provide much-needed relief from student loan debt, and will help us continue to make college in Maryland more affordable.”

Package Includes Incentives to Create Thousands of Jobs, STEM Education Funding, Workforce Development & Cyber Initiatives
ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today unveiled the 2017 Maryland Jobs Initiative, a comprehensive legislative package that will provide incentives for the creation of thousands of jobs and $5 million in strategic investments in education and workforce training to put even more Marylanders back to work.
As the centerpiece of this initiative, the governor announced the More Jobs for Marylanders Act, a proposal to create thousands of jobs and attract businesses by eliminating all state taxes for ten years for new manufacturing employers that create jobs in high unemployment areas. The legislation will also include tax incentives for current employers who expand their workforce in these areas, including Baltimore City, where the governor made this announcement at the Living Classrooms Foundation’s education and job-training facility in Baltimore’s Perkins Homes neighborhood.
“We are very excited about this Maryland Jobs Initiative which will help us create thousands of jobs, particularly in those areas of our state where we desperately need them the most,” said Governor Hogan. “There should be very broad bipartisan support for these common sense, job-creating proposals. We look forward to working closely together with our local partners and with our colleagues in the legislature to make this Maryland Jobs Initiative program a reality.”

|Governor Hogan News - Emergency Legislation to Repeal "Road Kill Bill"|
|December 14, 2016
ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today reaffirmed that the administration’s top legislative priority for the 2017 session of the Maryland General Assembly will be the immediate and full repeal of House Bill 1013, more commonly known as the Road Kill Bill. At a State House press conference, the governor joined Maryland Transportation Secretary Pete Rahn in announcing the administration’s plan to submit emergency legislation to repeal the Road Kill Bill and return the prioritization of transportation projects back to local jurisdictions. The bill was passed and became law over the governor’s veto during the 2016 legislative session.
“Today I am here to announce that we will submit emergency legislation for our top priority for this legislative session, which is to push for the full and immediate repeal of this disastrous bill which will absolutely be responsible for the elimination of nearly all of the most important transportation priorities in every single jurisdiction all across the state,” said Governor Hogan. “It will wreak havoc on the entire state transportation system and usurp important authority away from local governments and away from the executive branch of state government, giving authority instead to lobbyists and special interest groups.”
