For the last two years Governor Martin O’Malley has pushed the General Assembly to pass a wind power bill. That bill has been stalled in the State Senate in the Senate Finance Committee.That could have come to an end today with the announcement that Senate President Mike Miller will remove one of the biggest hurdles to committee approval. State Senator Anthony C. Muse (D- Prince George’s), who was placed on the Finance Committee after being moved from the Judicial Proceedings Committee to allow for the same-sex marriage bill to pass, will go back to that committee and leave the Finance Committee. In announcing the move Senator Miller said he believed that making that move will allow the bill, which has been locked in committee for years, to finally come to the floor and be discussed by the full body. Miller also said that Muse being on the Judicial Proceedings Committee could help that body finally act on another priority of Governor O’Malley’s, repealing the death penalty. Muse will be replaced by fellow Prince Georgian Victor Ramirez who represents the 47th legislative district.
Earlier today Governor Martin O’Malley sent an email to supporters lining up behind Lt. Governor Anthony Brown for “No matter what lies ahead for Anthony in public service.” To many that equaled an endorsement in Brown’s bid to be his successor.
Read the governor’s full email below:
Today Lt. Governor Anthony Brown released a new website in preparation of what many believe will be a campaign for governor in 2014. The site includes a life story video and comes with both a soon-to-be new wife and step-son. Brown and his ex-wife divorced in 2009.
Brown’s new website is anthonybrown.com. Will we see the LG use the space to provide distance between himself and outgoing incumbent Martin O’Malley? Take a stance on the tough issues like gambling?
Tonight Lt. Governor Anthony Brown is celebrating his birthday with a fundraiser that for many observers will be the first test of his campaign to replace Martin O’Malley when he leaves office in 2015. So you tell us today, are you inclined to support Anthony Brown for governor?
