ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is proposing a $150 million boost in public safety spending.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the Republican governor dubbed the plan the “Re-Fund The Police Initiative” and decried “an all-out assault on the entire law enforcement community” at a news conference announcing the plan Friday.

House Speaker Adrienne Jones says Hogan was trying to politicize efforts to make law enforcement more transparent and inclusive, but the House is ready for an honest conversation about improving policing and reducing crime.
