ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is speaking out against a measure to allow local school districts to decide whether schools start before or after Labor Day, but supporters say they just want to give local jurisdictions an option.           

The Republican governor held a news conference Thursday to criticize a measure now before the Democrat-controlled General Assembly.           

Hogan says he believes a majority of state residents support his 2016 executive order requiring schools to start after Labor Day. He says he believes residents will petition the bill to the ballot and reject it, if "out-of-touch" lawmakers pass the measure.           

Sen. Paul Pinsky, a Democrat who is sponsoring the bill, says politics should be taken out of the matter. He says the decision should be returned to local officials closer to communities.

    On Thursday, OC Air Show pilots and their planes flew into the Wallops Flight Facility to begin practicing for the weekend events. 

    On Saturday and Sunday the beaches of Ocean City will be filled with people looking up at the planes overhead.

    The 12th annual event is expected to bring in thousands of people, so Dirato recommends getting to the 17th street area as early as possible to get a good spot.
