ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland General Assembly has voted to override Gov. Larry Hogan’s veto of a measure that bans local jails from being paid by the federal government to detain people on immigration matters in Maryland.

The House and Senate, which are controlled by Democrats, also on Tuesday overrode the Republican governor’s veto of a bill that requires state employees to deny inspection of records or use of facial recognition technology by any federal agency seeking to enforce immigration law unless provided with a valid warrant.

Later Tuesday evening, the House approved a new congressional map in a special session on redistricting, sending it to the Senate.
