ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Board of Public Works will delay its consideration of whether to abolish 63 positions in the state’s Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

The board, which includes Gov. Larry Hogan, Treasurer Nancy Kopp and Comptroller Peter Franchot, was scheduled to take up the proposal on Wednesday. The board delayed consideration of the proposal since Kopp won’t be attending the meeting.
