O'Malley Addresses Counties On Budget

Play associated audio

By Kate Sheehy

Maryland's Governor is set to address the State Association of Counties tonight, with a nearly $2 billion budget deficit looming.

When O'Malley last addressed the group's annual winter conference, the state faced a $1.9 billion deficit and the governor said there would be "lots of cuts all around."

O'Malley has to submit the state's annual budget later this month, and this year finds the governor in a similar predicament, attempting to tackle a $2 billion deficit.

In addition to talking about the legislative session that begins next week, O'Malley is expected to address public safety during the speech.

Before speaking to the association this evening, the governor will be on the Eastern Shore highlighting efforts to create jobs in Maryland.
