Maryland Lawmakers Want to Discuss Northrop Grumman $20M

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Maryland lawmakers want to discuss a plan to allocate $20 million to Northrop Grumman as an incentive to keep the defense contractor in the state.
    
Leading lawmakers on Tuesday invited Gov. Larry Hogan to testify before a panel that would need to approve the money. They note the legislature approved a separate $37.5 million tax credit for Northrop Grumman.
    
Still, the $20 million from the Sunny Day Fund needs Legislative Policy Committee approval.
    
Doug Mayer, Hogan's spokesman, says the package was strongly supported by the House and Senate months ago. He says it's unclear why legislative leadership is "waffling," and "the ball is in their court."
    
The House speaker and Senate president say they have a responsibility to make sure taxpayers are getting a good deal out of $57.5 million.
