Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. is pushing for broader income-tax increases and a last-ditch attempt at expanding gambling as Maryland lawmakers look toward a possible special session, but the House appears reluctant to embrace either proposal.
Md. assembly session likely busy, defining for O'Malley; Metro proposes fare increases; D.C. eliminating free handicap parking; Md. assembly again will address death penalty issue; O'Malley to propose record school construction spending; McDonnell wants school to start before Labor Day; McDonnell urges Bolling, Cuccinelli to talk; No absentee ballots until judge rules on Perry suit.
A Maryland delegate will push to abolish the state's death penalty during the upcoming General Assembly, and the NAACP is expected to throw its support behind the proposal Tuesday.
