The Maryland Senate voted Thursday to approve Gov. Martin O'Malley's gun-control legislation, clearing the bill's biggest hurdle and sending it to the House where its passage would make Maryland's gun laws among the strictest in the nation.
A Senate committee agreed Thursday to rework Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposed budget, installing an alternative set of tax hikes and a more gradual shift in teacher-pension costs while avoiding any additional spending cuts.
"Violence is a cancer in our schools, in our homes and in our communities that doesn't just ravage the families and the victims, but the rest of us," state Sen. Roger Manno, Montgomery Democrat, said before Thursday's vote. "It erodes our society, and doing something about it is a choice that we have."
"We spent a lot of time working on this, trying to come up with the fairest and most equitable plan possible," said Sen. Roger Manno, Montgomery Democrat. "With the work product of the committee, we were able to do that."
