Hogan Here, There, and Everywhere
Fresh off Governor Hogan’s announcement he would not pursue a run for President, attention turned to top in-state priorities. A controversial transportation plan got its major approval after some on-the-fly changes. The Governor also spoke to a pro-business group, and seemingly drew battle lines in the upcoming debate over education funding and fiscal matters. Conduit Street has your coverage of this busy week in Maryland policy.

Conduit Street Podcast Corner:
On the latest episode of the Conduit Street Podcast, Michael Sanderson and Kevin Kinnally discuss the latest news and notes from Annapolis, including the Board of Public Works' approval of Governor Hogan's controversial plan to use private companies to widen highways in the region... with a catch. They also discuss how the renewed push for D.C. statehood could have major consequences for the Old Line State, and Natasha Mehu is back to discuss how major developments in the State of Oklahoma could set a precedent for more than 1,500 lawsuits against opioid manufacturers.
