ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan will be signing measures aimed at protecting Maryland's environment.

The Republican governor has a bill signing ceremony scheduled for Thursday afternoon in Annapolis.

The ceremony will take place by the water at the City Dock, not far from the Chesapeake Bay. Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael Busch are scheduled to attend.

Nearly 20 bills will be signed, including several proposed by the governor.

One of the governor's bills is the Clean Cars Act of 2017. It reauthorizes a rebate for electric vehicle recharging equipment.
