After more than a month without pay, two Maryland cabinet secretaries have filed a lawsuit in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.

Maryland Planning Secretary Wendi Peters and Health Secretary Dennis R. Schrader haven’t been paid since June 30, pursuant to budget language passed by the General Assembly.

I agree with Miller and Kopp! Hogan knew that his appointees would get negative reviews because they weren't not good appointees - and he knew the language of the law when he hired them. Hogan needs to reassess and get good candidates that can be voted on and approved - and paid! Otherwise, take it out of Hogan's salary - lol!


The State didn't hire them, Hogan did, let Hogan pay them.


more ridiculous nonsense from busch and miller who have long ago outlived their usefulness and Kopp should be fired...


Wait; I thought you were against recess appointments?

Shouldn't Democrats be demanding that these two employees get paid a "living wage"?


Only if they hire them, let Hogan give them a living wage, he hired them with out appropriate approval.
