ANNAPOLIS, Md (AP) – The Maryland Senate plans to add $520 million to Gov. Larry Hogan’s proposal to help the state recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Democrats who control the Senate are keeping Hogan’s proposals intact. Senators plan to bring the amended bill to the floor as soon as next week. A big focus of the Senate proposal is on education and business assistance. Education help represents about $116 million of the Senate’s plan. That includes $50 million to add eight weeks of summer school or tutoring for 25,000 students.
