O’Malley announces intention for one, maybe two special sessions

Today Governor Martin O’Malley announced that he had reached an agreement with the Speaker of the House and Senate President for a special session to deal with the revenue package for the budget before May 27th, but left open the door he would call another special session later in the summer to resolve the issue of gambling. According to one report from the Department of Legislative Services, a special session could cost the state as much as $25,000 per day. The one planned for May is expected to last no more than three days.

Stay tuned for more information.
