O'Malley postpones pre-inaugural event at U.-Md. because of icy roads

By Ann E. Marimow

The icy road conditions and school delays Tuesday morning led Gov. Martin O'Malley to postpone plans for a pre-inaugural event with college students at the University of Maryland at College Park. As part of the lead-up to O'Malley's swearing in on Wednesday, the governor and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown had planned to join hundreds of students on campus to discuss the cost of college, job creation and the state's budget woes.

The lousy weather appeared not to deter the General Assembly, which was still expected to convene Wednesday at 10 a.m.

O'Malley is scheduled to take the oath of office at noon Wednesday in the Senate chambers in Annapolis and then to make remarks on the steps of the State House at 12:30 p.m.
