Hogan and legislators can agree on growing Md. jobs

If there is one area where Gov. Larry Hogan Jr. can sing “kumbaya” with Maryland legislators, it is economic development. The path has been blazed for him by the legislature’s Augustine Commission.

A year ago, top Democrats in the General Assembly recognized Gov. Martin O’Malley had badly dropped the ball on growing jobs in Maryland. So they assembled a commission, led by former Lockheed Martin Corporation CEO Norm Augustine, with the assignment of suggesting how to turn things around.

The group made 32 recommendations, all sensible and none of them particularly novel. It won’t take much for the Republican governor and Democratic legislators to find agreement on most of those suggestions.
