Maryland schools can once again open before Labor Day following veto override

Maryland’s House of Delegates voted to override Gov. Larry Hogan’s veto of a school calendar bill that lets school districts set their own school calendar.

The Friday morning vote in Annapolis came one day after the Senate took similar action, and it effectively strikes down the governor’s 2016 executive order that required public schools to delay opening until after the Labor Day holiday and wrap up classes by June 15.

The vote took place as Hogan spoke to reporters along with members of Maryland’s congressional delegation.

Hogan was asked about the override vote.

So what would happen if everyone refuses to attend school before labor day?
