Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has announced actions to address anti-Asian hate crimes that have increased since 2019. The measures announced Monday are the product of a workgroup the Republican governor formed in April. They include enhanced safety and enforcement measures, increased access to community resources and additional tools for educators and students.

Hogan also said a Maryland State Police commander will be named to act as liaison for hate crimes and racially biased incidents.
