ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland House of Delegates has turned full force against Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan to index the minimum wage to inflation.
Only eight delegates voted Wednesday to put an indexing provision back into the minimum wage bill. Another 124 followed the House Economic Matters Committee's recommendation.
Dereck Davis, D-Prince George's, the committee chair, said the Senate would almost certainly reject the provision. Del. Heather Mizeur, D-Montgomery, urged delegates to vote for it anyway.
