Maryland Senate Democrats/Hogan likened legislators to kids on spring break.

"The governor's remarks drew a vehement response from Senator Bobby Zirkin, a Baltimore County lawmaker who is known as the less partisan Democrats in the Senate.

Zirkin took the floor to recount the hours of heart-wrenching testimony on serious issues the Judicial Proceedings Committee, which he chairs, had sat through in recent days.

"I don't recall there being a spring break from college," Zirkin said. "I'm insulted and I think every one of us should be insulted.
Zirkin said Hogan owes the Senate, the House of Delegates and the citizens of Maryland "yet another apology."

"If the governor doesn't know what we're doing, he should come down and watch a little while," Zirkin said.

After Zirkin spoke, not a single Republican senator rose to defend the governor's comments. Senate Minority Leader J. B. Jennings, a Baltimore County Republican, walked across the chamber and shook Zirkin's hand.

Jennings said he disagreed with Hogan's remarks."

1. Thank God that we have a

Democratic-controlled legislature. Whew!!

Hogan would love to turn MD into Jindal's Louisiana or Brownback's Kansas!

Maryland is a great state, in good measure due to former Gov MOM, and I want it to stay that way.
