Coming Up in Maryland Politics
Coming up this week in Maryland politics:
* County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) is scheduled to testify this afternoon in Annapolis at the Senate Capital Budget Subcommittee to try to secure an additional $2 million in state funding to create a live music venue in downtown Silver Spring.
* School Board President Nancy Navarro will officially announce her candidacy today for the District 4 special election to fill the vacancy left by the death of Marilyn Praisner. The announcement will take place at 11 a.m. at Good Hope Community Center at 14715 Good Hope Rd, Silver Spring.
* The County Council on Tuesday will continue work on the county's capital budget, including discussion on libraries and transportation projects. The council meets at 9:30 a.m. at 100 Maryland Ave., Rockville.
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY
Prince George's County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D) will deliver his annual State of the Economy speech on Thursday, at the Prince George's Chamber of Commerce's 7th annual Economic Development Project Showcase, 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Martin's Crosswinds, 7400 Greenway Center Dr., Greenbelt.
The Senate is scheduled to take up the state budget on Wednesday, the first of the two General Assembly chambers to do so. The House is set to consider the budget a week later, on March 19. Lawmakers are likely to cut Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposed budget, following a report last week from the Board of Revenue Estimates that revenue is projected to fall short of expectations by $333 million for the remainder of this fiscal year and the one that begins in July.
