Leggett Calls Off Trip to India

The General Assembly's special session has thrown a wrench into Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett's travel plans. Leggett was scheduled to leave tomorrow for India as part of his economic development department's trade mission. But Leggett has decided to stay put for the legislative session.

"He feels a responsibility to stay here and continue to work with the legislature in solving this very difficult problem and to protect Montgomery County's interest," said Leggett's special assistant Jennifer Hughes.

Leggett has been working to modify Gov. Martin O'Malley's income tax proposal to reduce the proposed top rates that would disproportionately affect taxpayers in his county.

Leggett's economic development director and a delegation of local business people will still make the overseas trip.
