Governor Hogan Announces Launch of Student Debt Repayment Plan
Will Provide Additional Access for Maryland State Employees in Critical Areas
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today announced the launch of SmartWork, an important component of the administration’s overall college affordability and student debt relief package. The governor introduced SmartWork in 2018 as part of a comprehensive series of initiatives to make a college education more affordable and provide relief to Marylanders burdened by student debt. The SmartWork component for state employees is now being launched following completion of negotiations with the state employee unions.
“Our administration is doing everything we can to ensure that all Marylanders have access to a college education, which includes making college as affordable and accessible as possible,” said Governor Hogan. “This innovative program will provide many of our hardworking state employees relief from the high levels of college debt that many families face.”
SmartWork’s Student Loan Repayment Plan (SLRP) will offer Maryland state employees working in specified shortage areas—such as nurses, correctional officers, police, and IT workers—the opportunity to receive state assistance with student loan debt. Current state employees in eligible job classifications who are paying down their children’s student loans may also qualify for this benefit, for children age 25 and younger.

Governor Hogan Announces Legislative Actions
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today announced in letters to General Assembly leaders that, in accordance with Article II, Section 17 of the Maryland Constitution, he has vetoed the following legislation passed during the 2019 legislative session:
HB 66/SB 252 – Railroad Company – Movement of Freight – Required Crew
“Maryland cannot afford to be at a competitive disadvantage to our neighboring states. The increased costs associated with this legislation, negative impact on the approximately 37,300 jobs generated by port activity, and potential to jeopardize the livelihood of Maryland workers who depend on a thriving Port of Baltimore is too harmful to allow these bills to become law.” Read the governor’s letter here.
HB 262/SB 537 – Higher Education – Tuition Rates – Exemptions
“To build on the success of that program, I proposed legislation to establish the Promise Plus Program, expanding available scholarships and giving all eligible Maryland students—United States citizens, permanent resident immigrants, and undocumented ‘Dreamers’ alike—the opportunity to receive free tuition for the remaining two years at a public four-year institution. Inexplicably, the General Assembly refused to support this common sense expansion to help all Maryland students. Instead, you adopted legislation that only narrowly expanded existing law to the total exclusion of all Maryland students holding U.S. citizenship or permanent resident (‘Green Card’) immigration status. This is unfair and unacceptable.” Read the governor’s letter here.
