Back from vacation rested and recharged (and a few pounds heavier), here’s Wednesday’s roundup of government-related news in Maryland:
- The Gazette reports that state lawmakers representing Prince George’s County will again attempt to advance legislation that would allow the county council to impose a fee on disposable bags used at retail stores.
- MarylandReporter.com reports on problems found within the State Highway Administration identified by a state audit.
- The Washington Post reports Gov. Martin O’Malley will continue in a leadership role with the Democratic Governors Association once his term as chairman concludes next week.
- The Baltimore Sun reports on a lawsuit filed by the Atlantic Coast Conference in an attempt to force the University of Maryland to pay a $50 million exit fee. The suit also names the University System of Maryland Board of Regents.
