Last year, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan scaled back the state’s plans for a light-rail proposal in the Washington region and cut out plans for a new rail line in Baltimore altogether. Democratic legislative leaders are now pushing back against Hogan’s highway-heavy agenda by unveiling a plan to change how transportation funding decisions are made, moving some of that power away from the governor’s office. Kojo explores the newest clash over roads and rails in Annapolis and what it means for communities in the D.C. region.
