Bad news and good news. Bad news first - the General Assembly has overridden Governor Hogan’s veto of The Backroom Bill along partisan lines. And oversight of Maryland’s Public School Construction Program will now fall to unelected political insiders who gather in virtual privacy, with no public scrutiny.
The big winners are Mike Miller, Mike Busch and their well-connected cronies. The big losers are public school families and teachers, Maryland taxpayers who deserve accountability for how their money is spent, and everyone who values open, transparent government.
The good news? The primary elections are coming. Saddle up. #ForThePeople
