Same-sex marriage legislation passed the Maryland Senate this year, and O'Malley said he would sign it if it reached his desk.

Gov. Martin O' Malley's office says the panel charged with the state's legislative redistricting process will hold 12 public hearings. The dates and locations will be released next week.

The Governor's Redistricting Advisory committee will use the public's input to help prepare a draft plan by September. The General Assembly will then hold a special session in October to redraw the state’s eight congressional districts.

Once that task is done, Annapolis lawmakers will take up the task of redrawing the state's legislative districts during the regular term, which begins in January of next year.
