ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and leaders in the legislature have reached a $1.86 billion agreement for tax relief over five years for retirees, small businesses and low-income families.

Officials announced Monday that when combined with a recently enacted gas tax suspension, the legislative session will deliver nearly $2 billion in tax relief.
