MACo Closing Address: Governor Hogan Calls for Action on Violent Crime, Warns of  ‘Gathering Storm’ on Education Funding

Press Release, August 19th

Will Again Push Legislature to Pass School Construction Plan; Touts Initiatives on Rural Broadband, Clean and Renewable Energy

ANNAPOLIS, MD—In his closing address today at the Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) Summer Conference, Governor Larry Hogan called for action on violent crime in Baltimore City and warned of a gathering storm surrounding education funding.

Violent Crime. Governor Hogan continued his push for proposals to address violent crime in Baltimore City, including legislation to remove repeat violent offenders from the streets.

“Nearly all of the initiatives that are currently being debated in other states, and in Washington, have already been enacted here in Maryland,” said Governor Hogan. “But none of that has stopped the murders and the violence…The time has come for all of us to take a stand together. I am calling on leaders at every level of government to join our efforts to impose tougher sentences for those who repeatedly commit these violent crimes. Enough is enough. Let’s come together and do what it takes to get these violent shooters off our streets once and for all.” 

Education Funding. In response to concerns expressed by county leaders throughout the conference, Governor Hogan warned of a ‘gathering storm’ surrounding the General Assembly’s lack of a plan to afford the anticipated nearly $4 billion price tag per year for its education blueprint.

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Continuing his commitment to skilled environmental stewardship, Governor Larry Hogan today announced new initiatives to promote clean and renewable energy projects in Maryland.

Clean and Renewable Energy Initiatives. Governor Hogan signed Executive Order 01.01.2019.09, establishing the Governor’s Task Force on Renewable Energy Development and Siting, which will work to develop consensus-based recommendations on the siting of new solar and wind energy projects in the state. To jumpstart that process, the governor announced new initiatives aimed at advancing solar energy deployment and development on state-managed and -owned properties:

  • The Maryland Department of General Services, along with the Maryland Environmental Service, will conduct a first-of-its-kind assessment and inventory of state properties that could be utilized for solar energy.

  • The state is pledging an additional $4 million in grants to aid large public institutions, including community colleges and universities, to deploy solar arrays on existing infrastructure—such as parking lots and rooftops—while encouraging state agencies to incorporate solar energy into any future construction.

“In my most recent State of the State address, I pledged my strong support for clean and renewable energy solutions that are affordable, reliable, and produce jobs right here in Maryland,” said Governor Hogan. “That is exactly what these announcements will help us to achieve. These innovative initiatives will provide millions of dollars in benefits to Marylanders and lower energy and maintenance costs, all while creating clean energy and green jobs opportunities.”

Hogan Administration Unveils New Financial Transparency Web Application

Press Release, August 2

Maryland Transparency Portal Will Draw Back the Curtain on the State Budget to Make Maryland’s Fiscal Operations Easy to Understand for All Constituents

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan and the heads of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and the Department of Information Technology (DoIT) today announced the launch of the “Maryland Transparency Portal,” a new web-based application that will empower citizens to become better informed about the details of the state budget with a user-friendly and easy-to-navigate interface. Using the Socrata platform currently trusted by government agencies at the local, state, and federal level throughout the country, the Maryland Transparency Portal (http://mtp.maryland.gov) will allow users to:

  • Navigate budget information—including expenditure detail, fund detail, and position information;

  • Navigate vendor payment detail by fiscal year (FY); and

  • Navigate grant and loan detail by fiscal year.

Four years of budget information will be available at launch: the FY 2020 legislative appropriation, the FY 2019 working appropriation, and actual data for both FY 2018 and FY 2017. Additional budget information will be added with the introduction of future budgets, revised following the Maryland General Assembly’s action on the budget each year, and finalized to coincide with the release of each fiscal year’s closeout report.

“One of our greatest challenges has been to find a way to convey information about the state budget that makes it easy for our citizens to understand where tax revenue is coming from, where it’s going, and why,” said Governor Hogan. “Finally, with the Maryland Transparency Portal, we’re able to give the public the tools necessary to cut through the partisan rhetoric and media spin to see for themselves how much of their money is being spent on the government programs and projects that are important to them.”

Statement from Governor Hogan on Supreme Court Gerrymandering Decision

Press Release, June 27

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Benisek v. Lamone:

“Today’s ruling was terribly disappointing to all who believe in fair elections. I pledge to vigorously continue this fight, both in Maryland and across our nation. Gerrymandering is wrong, and both parties are guilty. It stifles real political debate, contributes to our bitter partisan polarization, and deprives citizens of meaningful choices. The voters should pick their representatives, not the other way around. I will do everything in my power to restore free and fair elections for the people.

“The Supreme Court agrees that this is a matter for states and legislatures to address. Next year, I will again introduce redistricting reform legislation in Maryland to put the drawing of districts in the hands of a balanced, fair, and nonpartisan commission—instead of partisan politicians. This is a problem we can, should, and must solve. It is, and will continue to be, one of my highest priorities as governor.”

I am Republican because…

 

I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person's dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.

I BELIEVE  free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity. 

I BELIEVE  government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn. 

I BELIEVE  the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least. 

I BELIEVE  the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people. 

I BELIEVE  Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times. 

I BELIEVE  Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world. 

FINALLLY, I believe  the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
