Attorney General Frosh Playing Politics
During Session 2017, the majority party in the legislature obsessed on finding ways to obstruct the progress of President Trump in Washington rather than focusing on helping the people of Maryland. One of the most controversial resolutions that passed the legislature this Session was the broadening of Attorney General powers. The Democrats in the legislature voted to give AG Frosh the unchallenged authority to sue the Federal Government and President Trump without the consent of the Governor or the Legislature. I strongly opposed this action, I even led a walkout of Senate Proceedings when my fellow Republican colleagues and I were not granted the opportunity to try to defeat the resolution or at least have time to review it closely.
Here we are less than 4 months later, and Attorney General Frosh has jumped at an opportunity to sue President Trump without the approval of Governor Hogan or the Legislature. AG Frosh needs to focus on the people of Maryland rather than trying to interfere with D.C. politics. I urge the Attorney General to drop his unprecedented lawsuit against the President, and focus on doing his job by helping the people of Maryland.

New Law Expands Naloxone Access to all Marylanders
To combat the opioid overdose epidemic that is plaguing our State, Maryland Pharmacies now have a standing order to dispense Naloxone, a non-addictive lifesaving drug that can reverse and opioid overdose. I want to thank Governor Hogan and the General Assembly for working in this bipartisan manner to try and rid our state from the horrors of heroin in opioid addiction.
