Maryland lawmakers still negotiating on police reform

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland lawmakers are still negotiating on a package of extensive police reform legislation, but they will miss a deadline to pass the legislation to Gov. Larry Hogan in time for them to override any potential vetoes before they adjourn April 12. The Maryland Senate passed a large omnibus bill that originated in the House late Thursday night, but senators made some changes that still require House approval before the bill can go to the governor. Several other police reform measures also have yet to be passed, as the legislature approaches a Saturday deadline to present legislation to the governor, requiring him to act on them before the adjourn.
