When the state legislature convenes next week, Senate President Bill Ferguson says, its goal will be to target help to those hit hardest by the pandemic, including renters at risk of being evicted. Another priority is reforms to raise confidence in police. And Democrats intend to push to fund HBCUs and to override Gov. Hogan’s veto of the Kirwan Plan, the multibillion-dollar blueprint for public schools.
