BALTIMORE — On Friday, the Maryland House of Delegates sent Governor Larry Hogan a letter asking him to terminate Labor Secretary Tiffany Robinson and to cease his defense against lawsuits that are seeking to continue enhanced federal unemployment benefits.
Today, we renewed our call for the Governor to stop his efforts to end the additional federal unemployment benefits and asked for new leadership at the Maryland Department of Labor. Struggling Marylanders deserve better. pic.twitter.com/2Jpnz3Gy2K

Governor Larry Hogan's communication director said that this letter "smacks of total desperation."
