Governor Hogan held a press conference to outline his plan to use Maryland’s historic $2.5 billion fiscal surplus to cut taxes even more for Marylanders. Upon taking office, Maryland had a $5.1 billion deficit and its economy ranked 49th out of 50 states. Today, after seven years of tax cuts and fiscal discipline under Governor Hogan, Maryland’s economy ranks sixth in the country and has the largest budget surplus in state history.
At a press conference earlier today, Governor Hogan announced new actions to administer booster shots for seniors in congregate care facilities and immunocompromised Marylanders. With the federal government’s guidance on booster shots continuing to be “confusing and contradictory,” Governor Hogan is arguing “all of the evidence makes it abundantly clear that we cannot afford to delay taking decisive action to protect our most vulnerable citizens.” Governor Hogan is also continuing to call on the Biden administration to address boosters for those who received the J&J vaccine, advance full FDA approval of Moderna and J&J vaccines, and expedite approval of vaccines for 5- to 11-year-olds.
Governor Hogan appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” to discuss his leadership of Maryland during the pandemic and the toxic politics that divide America.
