Maryland's Senate president says the state government shouldn't push the Washington Redskins to change their name.
Virginia is considering repealing its 17.5-cent per gallon tax, while Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. wants to increase Maryland's 23.5-cent tax, which may make some interstate commuters decide to fill up in Virginia instead of Maryland.
Banning assault weapons, repealing capital punishment and laying the groundwork to develop offshore wind received strong endorsements by Maryland’s top leaders, who were confident that they would pass this year as lawmakers convened Wednesday for the first day of the legislative session.
Maryland legislators will be cutting their summer vacations short after Gov. Martin O'Malley announced a special session for Aug. 9 to address gambling questions left unanswered in the spring.
Leading Maryland lawmakers have formed a task force to study the effect of a recent court ruling that classifies pit bulls as an "inherently dangerous" breed of dog.
State leaders announced Wednesday morning that they have reached an agreement on a set of revenue increases to pursue during next week's special session.
The General Assembly likely will return May 14 for a two- or three-day special session on a revenue package including income-tax increases and a shift of state-paid teacher-pension costs onto counties, state officials said Wednesday.
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley emerged Tuesday from a much-anticipated meeting with the state's two leading lawmakers and revealed that he is not only leaning toward calling a special session, but he might even call two of them.

Gov. Martin O'Malley and Democratic leaders in Maryland's General Assembly appear to disagree over whether a special session should include discussion of a failed gambling bill, which would have let voters decide this fall whether to bring a casino to Prince George's County and legalize table games at the state's slots locations.
"If the House comes up with something better, we'll pass it," he said. "If the House comes up with anything we'll certainly consider it."
He said he considers the measure misguided, like trying to legislate foreign policy at the state level.
