Brown Says a Special Session is Likely
Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown (D) told a gathering of real-estate brokers today that he believes a special session of the legislature is likely to be called to address a looming $1.5 billion deficit.
Brown's comments, confirmed by his spokeswoman, came in an address to a Maryland Realtor's Association symposium in Linthicum on the impact on the state of the military's base realignment process.
Rick Abbruzzese, a spokesman for Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), said the governor has made no decisions yet regarding a special session. Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert) has suggested holding one in the fall.
Maryland's state budget is balanced for the coming fiscal year, which starts in July. The projected deficit is in the following year's budget, which O'Malley and lawmakers would otherwise craft starting in January.
