Here's the Associated Press's article, Nick Sohr's look with The Daily Record and Erin Julius' take for The (Hagerstown) Herald-Mail. The Gazette has its story and there's an audio report from WYPR's Joel McCord. Brian Griffiths with Red Maryland criticizes O'Malley's budget plan calling it "irresponsible budgeting".
