Gov. Larry Hogan Plans On Signing Bill That Repeals 'Maryland, My Maryland' As State Song, Spokesperson Says

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) -- Maryland may soon be getting a new state song.

A spokesperson says Gov. Larry Hogan plans on signing a bill nixing the song.

Earlier this year, state lawmakers successfully voted to repeal "Maryland, My Maryland," after decades of failed attempts.

The song is a Civil War-era call to arms for the Confederacy against then President Abraham Lincoln.

The bill has been awaiting the governor's signature since march.
