Senate Minority Leader E.J. Pipkin, Cecil Republican, accused Mr. O'Malley of being “more concerned about booking his appointments on ‘Morning Joe’ and ‘Meet the Press’ ” than passing a budget and now is placing blame at lawmakers’ feet.

“The governor’s national agenda and traveling took priority over the budget, and now he’s taking the attitude that this is the legislature’s fault,” Mr. Pipkin said. “We have a balanced budget, we’ve done our job, and it’s time to move on.”
