Here’s a few government and politics headlines for Tuesday, the day the state Senate will begin its debate on Gov. Martin O’Malley’s gun control bill:
- The Washington Post reports that the Virginia General Assembly, by passing a comprehensive transportation revenue bill, may have forced the hand of Maryland legislators.
- The Baltimore Sun reports former Maryland transportation secretary and Obama administration official John D. Porcari will brief Democrats in the House of Delegates on the importance of raising transportation revenue.
- The Capital of Annapolis reports Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr., D-Calvert and Prince George’s, doesn’t want voting sessions of committees streamed on the Internet unless the full Senate approves of a rule change. The Judicial Proceedings Committee, chaired by Sen. Brian E. Frosh, D-Montgomery, had streamed its voting session on O’Malley’s gun control bill last week.
