O’Malley to sign bills passed by General Assembly

ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Martin O’Malley is scheduled to sign bills passed by the General Assembly.

O’Malley is expected to be joined by state Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael Busch on Tuesday morning to sign measures passed by both chambers during the 2012 legislative session.

The annual General Assembly 90-day session concluded Monday at midnight, as lawmakers left several pieces of legislation, including key budget proposals, on the table.

O’Malley would not say whether he would call a special session to address outstanding legislation.

Bills expected to be signed Tuesday include a measure close loopholes that some counties have been using to avoid meeting school funding requirements and a bill that prohibits limits on cost sharing on coverage for orally administered chemotherapy.
