Hogan declares state of emergency for inauguration
Annapolis, MD (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has declared a state of emergency for the presidential inauguration next week. The Republican governor also made a request on Friday for a presidential disaster declaration to reimburse the state for costs incurred due to last week’s response to the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The state of emergency will allow the state to better coordinate support and provide assistance to local jurisdictions within Maryland and neighboring states. Hogan also is seeking support for the days leading up to, and including, the inaugural ceremonies.
