ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan has sold his waterfront home for $1.35 million.

Hogan sold the house last year, but the sale was reported this week by a local news website, Maryland Matters.

Public real estate records and the governor's financial disclosure statement confirm the sale of the four-bed and five-bath home in Edgewater, Maryland.

The governor and his wife, Yumi Hogan, bought the house in 2004 for $825,000. Hogan, a Republican who was a real estate executive before he was elected in 2014, is required to live in the governor's mansion in Annapolis.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Terry McAuliffe and First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe are celebrating the installation of a wheelchair ramp outside the Executive Mansion.

The governor and first lady are holding a ribbon cutting ceremony for the ramp on Monday.  

Before the new ramp, people with physical disabilities had to enter through the basement and take an elevator up to the main floor of the Richmond mansion.

The plan for the ramp drew criticism last year from former first lady Roxane Gilmore, who said it was unnecessary and could mar the building's historic character.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland lawmakers are scheduled to vote on a bill that would prevent departing governors from buying furniture from the executive mansion at a discount.

The bipartisan measure is scheduled for a vote Friday in the House of Delegates.

The bill was filed after former Gov. Martin O'Malley and his wife paid nearly $10,000 before he left office last year for 54 pieces of furniture that initially cost taxpayers about $62,000 eight years earlier. The Maryland Department of General Services sold the furniture after the pieces were declared "junk."

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The governor's mansion in Maryland has been lit pink this weekend to raise awareness about breast cancer.

Gov. Larry Hogan issued a proclamation earlier this month announcing October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The governor's office says about 4,730 Maryland women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and an estimated 810 will die of the disease.

Medical experts say regular breast cancer screening for women should begin at age 40.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Immigrant activists are scheduled to protest Gov. Larry Hogan's decision to comply with a federal program to notify federal authorities about when and where people facing possible deportation will be released from jail.

The protest is scheduled for Thursday at the governor's mansion in Annapolis.

Maryland corrections officials say the state is notifying federal officials about release dates and times of any inmate who has been identified by Immigration and Customs Enforcement as an immigration enforcement priority.
