Hogan vows to fight Maryland 'road kill' law.

'Gov. Larry Hogan said Wednesday his "top priority" next year will be repealing a law he dubbed "the road kill bill," which he says requires him to stop work on nearly every transportation project in Maryland.

That characterization is contradicted by an advisory letter from the office of the state attorney general, which says the governor can choose which transportation projects to pay for.

The Republican governor told reporters in Annapolis he would introduce emergency repeal legislation next month and "fight" the Democratic-controlled General Assembly.

Hogan vetoed the law this spring. The legislature immediately overrode the veto.

Hogan has called for the law's repeal for months, but on Wednesday gave the most vivid display of his approach: He gave the law a catchy nickname, and predicted "catastrophic" consequences if it isn't upended. He displayed large pictures depicting "killed" projects in Maryland's six largest counties, and listed dozens that he said would have to be canceled.'>>>

1. That is a misleading title to this thread.

I thought this was going to be about vehicle accidents with deer, cows, etc. In Texas the motto is "You kill it, we grill it."
