The June 17 Metro article “Hogan faces calls to overhaul policing” made me chuckle. Democratic legislators (who hold a majority in both houses of the Maryland General Assembly) adjourned the 2020 session early because of the novel coronavirus pandemic but promised to reconvene “in May” to finish their work. They never did.

Their inaction resulted in the death of at least 10 proposed laws relating to a range of law enforcement issues (including use of force, transparency, body cameras, and mental health and pension benefits for officers). If Democratic leaders want action, they should hold a special session and do their jobs — which is to enact legislation — rather than wait for Gov. Larry Hogan (R) to act.
