On Thursday O'Malley will give one of the last big policy speeches of his administration, this one on climate change.
Later this morning Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will give an update on the state's efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
The governor is hosting a summit on his administration's goal for the state to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by the year 2020. O'Malley will also release the final plans for Maryland to reach that goal.
It could be one of the final major policy speeches O'Malley gives as governor, as his second and final term expires in a little more than a year and a half. And his remarks could also be a preview of what O'Malley would say in stump speeches regarding climate change should he decide to run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, a decision he says he will make by the end of the year.
A panel will also discuss greenhouse gas emission reductions at this morning's summit, and includes officials from the University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins University, the AFL-CIO, and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network.
