Corona worries tie up legislative business

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Concerns about the coronavirus are starting to disrupt legislative business in state capitols across the country.

The Maryland General Assembly is asking people to submit comments electronically on legislation instead of showing up in person to testify at committee hearings. In Washington state, hardest hit by the virus, lawmakers were rushing to finish work on a budget containing funding for a coronavirus response before their session ends.
