Hogan Says he Would Rejuvenate Pardon Process

Posted:
BALTIMORE (AP)- Republican Larry Hogan says a governor's authority to commute sentences and pardon prisoners is an important power that he would rejuvenate if he is elected governor.

Hogan spoke in an interview with reporters of The Associated Press on Monday. Hogan says he believes Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration hasn't made pardons and commutations a priority of his tenure. Hogan says while he considers himself to be a tough law and order candidate, there are people who need the pardon and commutation process. He says he would seek help former Gov. Robert Ehrlich's help in using the power more.

Ehrlich, a Republican, made the executive branch power a priority.

Hogan also says he will continue focusing his campaign on economic issues, like cutting taxes and making Maryland more business friendly.
