ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley and leading lawmakers are set to discuss Maryland's upcoming special legislative session.
The Democratic governor agreed to call the special session after the Democratic-led legislature failed to agree on a budget, triggering more than $500 million in cuts.
The House and Senate are expected to use the session to push through an income tax increase that would eliminate the need for the cuts, which would largely affect education and social services.
