ANNAPOLIS, Md. —Counsel in the Maryland attorney general's office says Gov. Larry Hogan may have exceeded his authority by using an executive order to require public schools to start after Labor Day.
Adam Snyder, chief counsel of opinions and advice, expressed that view in a letter sent to two Maryland lawmakers Friday.
He says while he cannot say "unequivocally" that the executive order exceeds the governor's authority, he believes it is "likely" a reviewing court would conclude that it does.
