Hogan to Declare State of Emergency Next Month
During a press conference in Frederick on Friday, Governor-Elect, Larry Hogan repeated his campaign promise to declare a state of emergency upon taking office. Maryland will then be eligible for more federal funding and support for anti-drug measures. He also plans to convene a summit of state and national experts on law enforcement, treatment and first-responders to focus on the problem. Boyd Rutherford, Lieutenant Governor, will oversee the administration's effort to reduce heroin-related crime across Maryland.
