O'Malley Optimistic On Transportation Agreement

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley says he believes there is a "great shot" at reaching an agreement between legislative leaders this session on a transportation revenue package.
    
O'Malley said Friday that talks continue between his staff and staff members of House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller.
    
The governor declined to mention specifics. Nevertheless, he expressed optimism a consensus could be reached.
    
O'Malley also noted he believes there is growing recognition in the two houses of the Legislature that there is a need to get something done on transportation funding this year.
    
Critics of delaying action point out that next session will be held in an election year, when it will be harder to take tough votes.
