O’Malley scheduled to meet with Busch, Miller

ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Martin O’Malley is scheduled to have breakfast with the General Assembly’s presiding officers to talk about holding a special session.
O’Malley is set to meet at the governor’s residence with House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller on Tuesday morning.
The Maryland General Assembly ended up adjourning from their regular 90-day session earlier this month without passing a revenue package needed to avoid about a half a billion dollars in budget cuts.
O’Malley says he wants to have a special session. But he has said he wants to have a consensus before ordering lawmakers back to Annapolis.
One of the main sticking points relates to how to implement an income tax increase and which taxpayers would be affected.
