Kojo speaks with Maryland's Attorney General Brian Frosh about his office's expanded powers granted in the most recent General Assembly session. We also discuss the latest plan to make Metro solvent with Metro Board member and Arlington County Board member Christian Dorsey.
A lot can happen in a year. When Maryland lawmakers left the Annapolis in 2016, state coffers were brimming with a slight surplus. But on their first day of this year’s legislative session, that surplus is gone and with it the geniality between political parties. In the coming session, Republicans and Democrats are revving up for a year of head-butting on everything from balancing the budget to environmental policy to transportation. And, looming over every debate is the state’s upcoming gubernatorial election in 2018. Kojo previews Maryland’s biggest political battles with a tested observer.
