ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A measure to suspend Maryland’s gas tax for 30 days is headed to Gov. Larry Hogan for his signature.

State lawmakers gave the bill final approval on Friday, and the Republican governor is planning to sign the legislation later in the day.

The bill would suspend Maryland’s gas tax of 36 cents a gallon for 30 days.
