Legality of Hogan’s order on starting school after Labor Day is questioned

Hogan may have exceeded authority with order on school start. According to a lawyer in the office of Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh (D), “I can not say unequivocally that the Labor Day executive order exceeds the Governor’s authority, but I believe it likely that a reviewing court, if presented with the issue, would conclude that it does.”

According to the Washington Post, “The review from Frosh’s office comes more than two weeks after Hogan ordered the state’s 24 school systems to start after Labor Day and to end by June 15 starting next year. Systems may petition the state Board of Education to be exempt from the order.”
