Delegate Danica Roem joins us to talk traffic, tolls and the 2019 Va. legislative session, and Delegate Dereck Davis tells us why he wants to be the next speaker of Md.'s House of Delegates.
Last week’s announcement from Montgomery County’s school board of the 2018-2019 academic year calendar upset some parents and students who were displeased to see spring break shortened by two days. Board members, though, said the change was necessary due to the executive order from Governor Larry Hogan mandating that public schools in Maryland start after Labor Day and end by June 15. We discuss the decision to shorten spring break and look at the challenges local jurisdictions face when developing academic calendars.
