Maryland's governor plans to speak with legislative leaders today about more than $400 million in budget cuts. Governor Martin O'Malley's administration has outlined a furlough plan targeting employees who make the most money. State workers who earn more than $100,000 a year could be forced to take 10 days off without pay.

The cuts will go before the state's Board of Public Works tomorrow. It will be the sixth time the board has made midyear budget cuts since O'Malley took office in 2007. Last month the board approved $280 million in reductions.
