Gov. Martin O'Malley unveiled his proposed budget to reporters Tuesday. It includes layoffs and furlough days but no new taxes. He relies on accounting maneuvers in his proposed budget, reports Annie Linskey of The Baltimore Sun. Heather Harlan Warnack has Baltimore Business Journal's take on the budget, Hayley Peterson has The Washington Examiner's story and here's the version by The Washington Post.

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".

Julie Bykowicz with The Sun writes Maryland that business groups are unhappy with the governor's plan to expand unemployment benefits. State business regulators say the state needs to borrow up to $300 million to keep the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund afloat, writes Nicholas Sohr with The Daily Record.

Paul West of The Baltimore Sun West has the reaction of Maryland politicians to Republican Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts.

Maryland did not submitt applications for federal Race to the Top for education funds, writes Bykowicz in The Baltimore Sun's Maryland Politics blog.

Speed cameras nabbed 8,745 drivers in the first six weeks, writes Ashley Halsey III of The Washington Post.

Environmentalists are starting to push back against the Costco subsidy in Wheaton, writes Adam Pagnucco in Maryland Politics Watch.

Kevin Spradlin with Cuberland Times-News says local legislators are asking for $600,000 for the Allegany Museum.
