Md. governor calls special session to deal with deficit

October 15, 2007|By

ANNAPOLIS (AP) ? Gov. Martin O'Malley has formally called for a special session to grapple with Maryland's $1.7 billion budget deficit.

O'Malley is calling lawmakers back to Annapolis in two weeks to consider legislation to address the deficit. The session will begin Oct. 29.

The governor says he doesn't believe it would be a good idea to wait until the General Assembly's regular 90-day session early next year. O'Malley says that's because the state needs to get fiscal reforms on the books before then to keep the budget problem from getting worse.
