Silver Spring woman speaks out against Supreme Court nominee

A Silver Spring woman whose daughter spent five months in the neonatal intensive care unit and currently needs help breathing and eating is speaking out against appointing Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In a virtual news conference hosted by U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) on Tuesday, Elena Hung said that if it wasn’t for the federal Affordable Care Act, her 6-year-old daughter would have long ago surpassed the health care life financial limit. [Montgomery Community Media]

In Montgomery, officials talk stimulus, revenues, education reform veto

State and local officials say the economic hit brought on the pandemic might not be as bad as originally expected ― so long as the federal government doles out stimulus money later this year.

But although revenue shortfalls might not be as bad as originally anticipated, a strong second wave of COVID-19 or a stalled federal stimulus package could put state and local governments in a “catastrophic” situation, Comptroller Peter V.R. Franchot (D) warned during a virtual discussion with Committee for Montgomery on Tuesday night. [Maryland Matters]
