O'Malley says state won't skimp on snowstorm
"The primary responsibility of all government is to safeguard citizens' lives," O'Malley said at a news conference held at the State Highway Administration Operations Center in Hanover, which was broadcast live on Baltimore television. "We're not going to skimp on staff. We're not compromising on public safety."
O'Malley said it was premature to say how much the response to the snowstorm would cost the state.
O'Malley earlier issued a Declaration of Emergency that gives the state flexibility to activate the Maryland National Guard and provide assistance to local emergency managers.
