ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland General Assembly has sent about a dozen bills to Gov. Larry Hogan, so lawmakers will have a chance to override vetoes before adjourning next month.

One of the bills the Democrat-controlled assembly sent to the Republican governor by Friday’s deadline would change how school-construction funding decisions are made. It would take the power away from the Board of Public Works, which includes the governor, and moves the authority to a commission.

Hogan has pledged to veto the bill.

They also sent the governor the state’s capital budget, in which the governor can reject specific items without vetoing the entire bill.

A bill to create automatic voter registration, as well as some pro-labor union measures, also went to Hogan.

The legislative session ends April 9 at midnight.
