April 10, 2012 – Segment 1

Last night for the first time since 1992, the legislative session ended without agreement on a budget for the next fiscal year.  A “doomsday budget” will go into effect, slashing state programs, unless Governor Martin O’Malley calls a special session and lawmakers are able to pass a budget.  We’re joined by four lawmakers to discuss the session, and the next steps in the budgeting process.
Our panel is:
Mary Washington, Delegate from District 43 in Baltimore
Shawn Tarrant, Delegate from District 40 in Baltimore
Tom Hucker, Delegate from District 20 in Montgomery County
Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio, Delegate from District 37B, in Caroline, Dorchester, Talbot & Wicomico Counties
