A recently-passed Maryland law will make attending community college more affordable for state residents.
Last week, Gov. Larry Hogan (R) signed a bill that will help cover the cost of tuition for some state residents attending community colleges. The bill allocates $15 million in state funding to provide scholarships up to $5,000 for students whose family earn less than $150,000 a year or for adults with an income of $100,000 a year or less.

Larry Hogan (R) walked out of his meeting with Maryland’s Congressional Delegation last week it seemed it could not have gone better -- at least that's what he said.
Speaking at a brief press conference, Hogan and the delegation gave the impression after the meeting that their party affiliation did not matter.
Like political allies, each Maryland politician repeated and reiterated their shared priorities and objectives -- to save the state from a slew of federal cuts to the management of the Chesapeake Bay, healthcare, and transportation.
“I think it was a very productive meeting on really important shared priorities that are important to the people of Maryland,” Hogan said.
