    Hogan announced major transportation upgrades and projects in a June 25 conference, the first since he announced his diagnosis.

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has made his first public appearance since finishing his opening round of chemotherapy last week.

    Unscheduled, Hogan came downstairs on Monday from his second-floor Annapolis office to open the restored Old Senate Chamber to visitors.

    Hogan completed his first course of chemotherapy last week for treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He told the visitors that he felt "pretty good" and wasn't feeling some of the harsh side effects of the treatment.

    Hogan says that opening the chamber back to the public was a historic event in itself.

    The chamber was closed for three years while undergoing $8 million in work to restore it to its appearance when Washington addressed Congress there on Dec. 23, 1783. Annapolis served as the capital of the United States in 1783 and 1784.
