Coming Up In Maryland Politics

STATE GOVERNMENT

* The General Assembly goes into the third week of a special session to consider measures to close a projected state budget shortfall of at least $1.5 billion. The House, which wrapped up a six-hour debate on its tax bills shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday, must reconcile its tax increase legislation with that of the Senate, which passed a comprehensive tax bill Friday. The Senate and House plans differ on a number of issues, including the top income tax rates and expansion of the sales tax. And the House has yet to take up a measure supported by Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) and the Senate that could prove even more challenging to push through the chamber: a bill calling for a referendum next year on placing up to 15,000 slot machines at five locations in Maryland.

Why hasn't the paper printed the votes by the individual Delegates on the tax increases?
