Maryland Gov. Wes Moore to attend President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address

Maryland Gov. Wes Moore will accompany U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin on Tuesday to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address.

Cardin invited Moore “to celebrate renewed prospects for robust federal-state partnerships” in the state, according to a news release from Cardin’s office.


Maryland is poised to make advancements in infrastructure, transportation, public health and safety and the Chesapeake Bay, Cardin said in the release.

“From the passage of the American Rescue Plan to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Inflation Reduction Act and the return of Congressionally Directed Spending projects, Maryland is ready to leverage important investments in our state and local communities,” he said.


On Wednesday, Moore gave his first State of the State address, asking state lawmakers to support his first package of bills aimed at inspiring a wave of public service.

Cardin and Moore, both Maryland Democrats, will “spotlight opportunities for renewed federal-state partnerships” during their visit, according to the release.

“We are thrilled to know that we have strong support and partners in Washington who will work closely with us to build on bipartisan legislative accomplishments, ensuring that Maryland is a national leader in advancing infrastructure, transportation, education, and health,” Moore said.

Both will attend the annual Secretary of the Senate’s dinner before heading to a joint session on Capitol Hill for the State of the Union.
