Maryland Senate Overrides Governor's Veto for Paid Sick Leave

Maryland Governor Hogan releases statement after Senate overrides paid sick leave veto

The Maryland Senate on Friday overturned Gov. Larry Hogan's 2017 veto of a sick-leave bill, making Maryland the ninth state in the country to require businesses to provide the benefit.

Republicans argued that the legislation could hurt smaller businesses and deter hiring, especially among "opportunity employers", - who take on less-skilled or riskier hires - said Sen.

Hogan's statement also comes after the House voted to override his veto, on Thursday. Maryland becomes the second state in the country to ban colleges to asking about past convictions on applications.

Supporters say colleges can ask about criminal history at other stages in the admission process.

Overrides of that legislation passed 90-50 in the House on Thursday, and 32-15 in the Senate on Friday. Both chambers mustered the necessary three-fifths to override. Richard Madaleno says it's a step toward recognizing that a person's potential is not defined by the bad choices they have made.

"I think the practicality of this is we've done everything that we can as a body to be as understanding of business needs as we possibly can", Middleton said. "You wanted to make sure you shoot the guys with the black hats, and my concern is in this legislation we're going to shoot some guys with white hats", Serifini said.

Democrats, however, argued that paid sick leave was long overdue and that they owed it to their constituencies to act.

He says with his proposed amendment bill, he'll work to give businesses more time.

Republicans who sought to sustain the veto supported an alternative offered by the governor that included a tax cut as an incentive. Sen.

Sen. Thomas M. Middleton (D-Charles), chairman of the Finance Committee, which debated the bill a year ago, said that he viewed its passage as part of his responsibility as a legislator to "protect the health and welfare of our citizens".

Hogan is running for reelection, and a number of Democrats have announced they are running in the primary to challenge him.
