Special Session in the Works?

ANNAPOLIS, MD – News abounded yesterday on the blogosphere, Twitter, and Facebook that Maryland governor Martin O’Malley had called a special session of the Maryland General Assembly to increase taxes and avoid the so-called “Doomsday Budget” which spends ONLY $700 million more than last year.  House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Mike Miller have both told the press that they expect a session the week of May 14th.

While some politicians and special interest groups are touting the session as a done deal, both the Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post are hedging their bets and reporting that “progress is being made”.
