Md. Senate Raises Questions About Gov. Hogan's Higher Education Appointee

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan's appointee to head the Maryland Higher Education Commission hasn't been confirmed by a Senate panel, which has held its last scheduled meeting this legislative session.

Sen. Jamie Raskin said Monday that serious questions were raised about how Jennie C. Hunter-Cevera would fit in to the post.

Raskin, D-Montgomery, says that prompted a division of opinion on the Senate Executive Nominations Committee. He cited a no-confidence vote by the faculty of the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute in 2009, when she was the institute's president.

Hogan's other Cabinet appointments have been confirmed by the committee.

Hunter-Cevera could still serve in an acting capacity until next session. Her appointment would have to be confirmed next year for her to stay in the job.
