Major policy change – like any dessert recipe – is often revised and tweaked with a pinch less of this and a dash more of that. A tasty proposal by Governor Hogan to fast-track school construction funding has since evolved into a multi-ingredient offering passed by the House. Now, that bill – with its newly pre-sliced “pie” of funding by county – sits in the Senate committee, awaiting a new hearing and debate from that chamber. Will this historic commitment and re-thinking of school construction make it to the dinner table? Or is the recipe… not quite right?

On the latest episode of the Conduit Street Podcast, Michael Sanderson and Kevin Kinnally discuss the latest news and notes from Annapolis, including the status of the "Fight for Fifteen" minimum wage bill, the Clean Energy Jobs Act, a proposal to abolish the Handgun Permit Review Board, school funding, school construction, and intriguing language in the Senate's version of the 2019 Budget Reconciliation and Financing Act "BRFA."
