ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) -The Maryland General Assembly has adjourned its 90-day session that focused largely on COVID-19 recovery, expansive police reforms, and economic and health disparities worsened by the pandemic. With top-priority legislation on economic relief and police reform already passed earlier in the session, lawmakers approved a measure to implement sports betting. Maryland voters approved sports betting in November. Sports betting could begin as soon as the fall. Gov. Larry Hogan highlighted bipartisan agreement on pandemic relief earlier in the session. He also underscored bipartisan agreement on how the state will allocate $3.9 billion in federal pandemic relief.
