The Maryland legislature is in the midst of a special session called by Governor Martin O’Malley. The major issue facing this special session is the state budget. While Maryland is reported to be the richest state in the union, it faces a budge deficit. To remedy the situation the governor is putting forth a plan that calls for generating more revenue.

What programs, if any should be cut? Today, in our ongoing look at the special session, we’ll look at the state budget from three perspectives.
