April 07, 2010

ANNAPOLIS - House Minority Leader Anthony J. O'Donnell, R-Calvert/St. Mary's, offered an amendment Wednesday that would strip $200,000 allocated to Casa de Maryland Inc. from the state's capital budget.

The amendment failed, 47-89.

Del. Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington, spoke in support of the amendment.

All five of Washington County's delegates voted in favor of the amendment.

Del. Doyle L. Niemann, D-Prince George's, said the multicultural center the funding is directed to is a worthwhile project that will offer health programs, English as a second language classes and citizenship programs.
