Your Turn: Washington Athletes Take The Knee, Maryland Toll Lanes and More

It’s “Your Turn” to share your views about the stories Washingtonians are talking about. For starters, some Washington area professional football players have joined the nationwide protest to “take the knee” in opposition to criticism of league players by President Donald Trump. In Maryland, Governor Larry Hogan has introduced a plan to widen three of the state’s busiest highways by four toll lanes. The project is reportedly the biggest express lane project in U.S. history, and would be the largest public private partnership on the continent. In D.C., the health department is cracking down on pets at outdoor bar and restaurant patios and a new “dockless” bike share arrives to the nation’s capital.
