Just a few bits on what is happening here in Maryland with our new Gov.
O'Malley is reaching out strongly to labor, working families and the middle class. All very good, in my opinion. I am a strong supporter of labor and believe that a viable labor movement is a great benefit to the country.
The Maryland budget is not in quite such difficulty as was previously thought. An expected $20 billion shortfall may be as little as $9 billion. That is good news indeed.
The state looks posed to adopt more environmental friendly legislation.
Early voting may be coming to Maryland. This could be very good for getting greater participation in the electoral process.
