    By BRIAN WITTE, Associated Press ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland legislative panel voted unanimously Wednesday to subpoena Gov. Larry Hogan's former chief of staff, who resigned last month over a six-figure payment he received from a state agency as he left to work in the governor's office. In a bipartisan 24-0 vote, the Legislative Policy Committee subpoenaed Roy McGrath to testify before the legislature's Joint Committee on Fair Practices and State Personnel Oversight. That panel has held hearings on the payment to McGrath, who was chairman of the board at the Maryland Environmental Service. “Viewed on its own, it is disturbing enough that there seemed to be a complete lack of responsibility over spending and executive-level decisions," said Sen. Clarence Lam, a Democrat who co-chairs the oversight panel. “I’m also worried that it points to a troublesome pattern of personnel problems, particularly when it comes the administration’s political appointees.” Lawmakers have said McGrath has declined requests to appear before the committee to answer questions. Bruce Marcus, McGrath's attorney, wrote in an email Wednesday they will review the subpoena when...
    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Governors who ordered shutdowns as their states responded to the coronavirus pandemic were among millions of beneficiaries of the loan program created to help small businesses weather COVID-19’s effect on the economy, data released Monday show. The governors of at least eight states have ties to companies that received loans through the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program. Both Republicans and Democrats, their associated companies’ loans ranged from $150,000 to more than $11 million. It is legal for businesses owned by elected officials to apply for and receive the loans, which are forgivable if used to preserve jobs. A minor league baseball team part-owned by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine received a loan, as did an investment company led by New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu’s family. A communications company in which New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has a stake, and a winery and hospitality company founded by California Gov. Gavin Newsom also were beneficiaries. At least six of billionaire West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s family businesses qualified for loans. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s former medical practice, in...
