Maryland General Assembly Adjourns
The Maryland General Assembly adjourned sine die on April 8.
Legislators were in mourning due to the death of House Speaker Michael Busch the day prior.
A Democrat from Anne Arundel County, Busch served as speaker for 16 years, longer than anyone in state history.
Though delegates will vote for a new leader at a later date, county committee members will appoint a successor to Busch’s House seat.
