Mr. O'Malley said lawmakers could also choose to bring up other issues during the session, such as legislation to soften a recent court ruling that classifies pit bulls as an “inherently dangerous” breed of dog.
Mr. O'Malley also hinted he would like to see lawmakers consider a revenue package to raise money for road and transit projects.
The governor floated proposals earlier this year to fund transportation by increasing the gas or sales tax, but House Speaker Michael E. Busch said this week that any such proposal is a long shot with current gas prices.
“I find that highly doubtful, unless gas goes to $1.25 a gallon,” said Mr. Busch, Anne Arundel Democrat.
