The Maryland House of Delegates has over-ridden Govenor Larry Hogan’s veto of a controversial paid sick leave bill.  Democrats were able to muster the needed 3/5th majority to overturn the veto—now it heads to the senate, where a close vote is expected. Governor Hogan has released a draft version of a paid sick leave bill he calls a common sense solution. The measure up for discussion would require businesses with 15 employees or more to provide up to 5 paid sick days annually.
