ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The ACLU of Maryland and the state’s teachers’ union are calling on Gov. Larry Hogan to withhold $5 million in state funding for private school vouchers.

The groups made the call Friday after the Republican governor’s budget chief announced Hogan would not spend $80 million that lawmakers set aside for various programs due to softening revenues.

The groups want Hogan to send the $5 million set aside for private school vouchers to public schools instead.

Shareese Churchill, a Hogan spokeswoman, says the governor has provided record funding for public K-12 education in each of his two budgets.
