Red Maryland News Hour: January 29, 2016

It’s the Red Maryland News Hour for this week, bringing you the best in State politics this week.

On this week’s show:

  • Another excuse for no school air conditioning is removed by the Board of Public Works. Comptroller gives former Red Marylander Mark Newgent kudos, applause ensues.
  • The Board also give kudos to those who dealt with the Blizzard of 2016.
  • Governors won’t be able to abscond with bargain-priced furniture if a Delegate gets his way.
  • Governor Hogan dealt with the snow, but also proposed bills to curb heroin abuse with the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program & prosecuting drug trafficking.
  • The Governor also wants a Constitutional Amendment so an independent, bipartisan group can draw legislative lines. A leading Democrat doesn’t like the idea, and a RedMarylander has questions for that leader.
  • High School students who graduate early could get a scholarship worth 6 grand, thanks to an executive order the Governor signed.
  • A Maryland company will expand and hire more people, thanks to loans from the State and a county.
  • Greg Kline writes for MarylandReporter.com again, this time about physician assisted suicide, right as a bill comes up advocating the practice as an “option”.
  • A Maryland county school system gets a civil rights suit for indoctrinating a student in Islam.
  • We hear about bills dealing with self-driving cars, attorney fees, and making personal protection a reason to get a gun permit.
  • We hear a bit about what is happening in the week ahead as well.

The Red Maryland News Hour airs Fridays on the Red Maryland Network…….and don’t forget that you can subscribe to all Red Maryland Network programming on iTunes and on Stitcher.
