ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland lawmakers are gathering in Annapolis today for their 90-day legislative session.

They are starting with a huge budget surplus because of unexpectedly large revenues resulting from the help of federal pandemic aid. Democrats, who control the General Assembly, say they will be prioritizing upgrades to parks, bridges, schools and information technology systems to help put more people back to work. Republicans, including Gov. Larry Hogan, are calling for tax relief.

Some other high-profile issues include whether to legalize recreational cannabis and how to address climate change.
