License Restored for Prince George's Station

The Maryland State Police last week restored the license of an automotive inspection station in Prince George's County that was revoked four years ago after authorities had said that it was issuing certificates for safety inspections that it did not perform.

The reinstatement occurred as Sen. Nathaniel Exum (D-Prince George's) , who had been lobbying for the restored license, was holding up the Senate confirmation of Col. Terrence Sheridan to lead the state police agency. The Senate confirmed Sheridan this morning on a 42-1 vote, with Exum the only senator opposed. During debate on the floor this morning, Exum questioned whether Sheridan was sufficiently committed to diversity in the workforce, while several senators from Baltimore County said he was a man of high character.

Here is the full story by John Wagner and Rosalind S. Helderman on the license restoration.
