Now It's Your Turn: Who should make the big cuts?
Maryland's governor can make budget cuts of up to 25 percent with the blessing of the three-member Board of Public Works. Should controversial decisions, such as Wednesday's closure of an Eastern Shore psychiatric hospital, be left to the legislature? What do you think?

On Tuesday, we asked whether you agree with the Montgomery County Council that proposed tolls for the Intercounty Connector are too expensive. We got a range of opinions on our Maryland Politics Web site and on our Facebook page.
The most intriguing came from Karen Shimp on Facebook:
"The toll is so high, will be very interesting to see who's actually willing to pay it. Hubby had an interesting idea: Make it free for the first 3 months or so, get people addicted to it & therefore willing to pay."
We're also hearing from you about a proposal by Del. Saqib Ali (D-Montgomery) to post legislative commmitee votes online -- something that isn't done now.
A lot of people seem to like the idea, but Don Hinds told us on Facebook that he is skeptical:
"Will never happen. Darkness rules the Maryland legislature. Light would turn them into dust."
