The population of Annapolis has gone down this morning.  Maryland state senators and delegates are home, or heading home.  In the legislative session that ended at midnight, they raised the minimum wage to $10.10/hour by 2018 and expanded the school day for some pre-schoolers.  

Sheilah Kast talks about the newly-passed bills—and what the Governor is likely to sign this morning—with Chris Connelly, WYPR’s statehouse reporter, and Jenna Johnson, Maryland politics reporter for the Washington Post.
