Gov. Hogan issues a state of emergency

Maryland

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WVDM) — Maryland Governor Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency on Friday.

Following the riots and breach of the Capitol Building in D.C., Gov. Hogan issued a proclamation declaring the state of emergency in relation to the upcoming presidential inauguration. This decision is likely inspired by mounting worries of another violent event occurring and disrupting President-Elect Biden’s entry into office.

In a press release, Gov. Hogan wrote, “Maryland will continue to do everything we possibly can to secure our nation’s capital and to ensure the peaceful transition of power.”
