Coming Up in Maryland Politics
Coming up this week in Maryland politics:
* The county executives in both Prince George's and Montgomery Counties will announce their annual budget proposals today. Both counties are struggling with slower revenue growth because of the faltering economy. Prince George's Executive Jack B. Johnson (D) will speak at 2 p.m., at Prince George's Office of Information Technology, 9201 Basil Court, Suite 250, Largo. Montgomery Executive Isiah Leggett (D) will brief the council on his budget Monday at 8:30 a.m. in the executive's conference room, 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville, before a press conference at 10 a.m.
* The House of Delegates in Annapolis takes up the state budget this week. The Senate passed its version last Friday; the House starts debate on Wednesday. The two chambers will go to conference to negotiate their differences starting next week.
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY
