Coming Up In Maryland Politics
Coming up this week in Maryland politics:
Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) continues to roll out his legislative agenda this week. He plans two announcements today: one at 10 a.m. in Prince George's County on an initiative to address the wave of home foreclosures in Maryland, the other at 2 p.m. in Baltimore on a proposal that would freeze tuition at public universities for another year.
On Wednesday, O'Malley will present his budget proposal at the State House in Annapolis. The legislature has directed him to cut $500 million, as part of an effort to close a projected $1.5 billion shortfall.
County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) on Tuesday will submit his capital budget proposal for school, road, library and other government facility projects to the county council.
Also on Tuesday, the council returns from its winter recess to review Leggett's proposed $23.6 million in mid-year spending cuts. Look for council members to try to protect the free ride on bus service for students and to pull back changes in fire and rescue service. The council meets at 9:30 a.m. at 100 Maryland Ave., Rockville.
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY
The county council returns after its winter recess to hear reports on county and school system finances for the fiscal year that ended last June. The council meets at 9:30 a.m. at the County Administrative Building, 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive, Upper Marlboro.
