First there was a new casino and table games, then came "inherently dangerous" dogs, and now Maryland's transportation system has joined the growing list of legislative issues state lawmakers are hoping get onto the special-session agenda next week.
Maryland's State Highway Administration broke state laws by using $11.3 million in funds since 2008 for unapproved purposes and to conceal overspending on projects, according to an government audit.
Two Maryland legislators are urging state officials to require that the state's largest electricity provider become an independent company as a condition of a proposed merger involving its parent company.
Two Maryland legislators are proposing that the sale of the state's largest power company be contingent upon a return to regulation, arguing utility deregulation over the past 12 years has resulted in excessive rate increases.
"Deregulation has failed. We're not going to give up on re-regulation until it is done," says State Sen. James C. Rosapepe, Prince George's Democrat.
Mr. Rosapepe said the competition among providers has not materialized due in part to reluctance to build new power plants during difficult economic times.
