ANNAPOLIS, Md. — On Thursday, the legislature reversed some bills the Governor vetoed last year.
The house and senate discussed eight bills that were to override the governors vetoes. The legislators successfully reversed five of the bills the governor vetoed.
The bills included:
- The state's Dream Act
- Updating laws effecting state employees grievances
- Allowing some complaints to be taken to state administrative judges
- Revamping the system for oyster harvesting regulations
- Not allowing employers to ask about your criminal history on job applications, called "Ban the Box"
- Abolishing the Handgun Permit Review Board
"It's really a question of access to justice. Decisions like that shouldn't be made by political appointees, they should be made by administrative law judges. So them abolishing this process that's currently in place in think had to do with a lot of politics and not a lot of substance," Luedtke said.
"30,000 people have gone through the existing process and of those 30,000 people that have that right to carry there have been zero violations, zero criminal investigations," Kipke said. "So them abolishing this process that's currently in place in think had to do with a lot of politics and not a lot of substance."
Law makers failed to override three of the governor vetoes, one of these deals with the Howard Street Tunnel expansion. The tunnel will be expanded to fit cars stacked on top of each other. This will help moving goods to and from the port.
