ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A measure requiring presidential hopefuls to make their tax returns public in order to appear on Maryland's ballot has passed the state Senate.

The bill was approved on a 28-17 vote Monday night. It would require presidential and vice presidential candidates to release the preceding five years of their tax returns to appear on the ballot. It was introduced after President Donald Trump bucked tradition and didn't release his tax returns during his 2016 campaign. The bill now goes to the House of Delegates.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Environmental activists, business groups and a retired U.S. Navy admiral in Virginia have blasted the Trump Administration's offshore drilling plan.

The critics claimed outside a public comment session Wednesday that drilling would interfere with military training near the world's largest Navy base and imperil tourism and fishing along that stretch of Atlantic coast.

The group converged near a hotel conference room in Richmond where the administration sought public comment on its plan to expand oil and gas drilling on the East and West coasts.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh has filed to run for a second term.

Frosh, a Democrat from Montgomery County, announced his re-election bid Thursday.

Frosh has occasionally clashed with Republican Gov. Larry Hogan. Last year, after Donald Trump's election, the Democrat-controlled Maryland legislature gave Frosh expanded authority to sue the federal government without the governor's permission.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Federal officials have set a new date for a meeting on potentially reopening the Virginia coastline to oil and gas drilling.

The Virginian-Pilot reports the meeting is now scheduled for Feb.21. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management put off a meeting in January near Richmond due to a snowstorm.

In January, President Donald Trump's administration announced it'll seek to dramatically expand offshore oil and gas exploration.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has said Florida's entire coastline would be removed from the plan.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Democrats in charge of Maryland's legislature are telling President Donald Trump and Republican leaders in Washington that "enough is enough."

They urged them Wednesday to reach a budget agreement to avoid a federal government shutdown.

In a letter Wednesday, House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller said they were speaking "on behalf of a state that is exhausted from being whipsawed by the inaction in Washington, D.C."

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware's Public Advocate says the new tax law recently signed by President Donald Trump should lead to lower water and electricity bills.

The Wilmington News Journal reported that Delaware Public Advocate Andrew Slater is charged with lobbying on behalf of ratepayers. He filed a petition Thursday with state regulators arguing that lower corporate tax rates will benefit utilities. Slater said they should pass on those savings to consumers.
