Senate committee fails to reach decision on MSP superintendent
Questions remain for Gov. Wes Moore's pick for Maryland State Police's superintendent. Lt. Col. Roland Butler went before a Maryland State Senate committee Monday evening to convince them to endorse his nomination to the full Senate. Butler would be the first Black superintendent of the State Police, but senators had a lot of questions about his role in a department now under federal investigation for discrimination. Three state troopers filed a class-action lawsuit in 2022 alleging systemic discrimination against officers of color.
