Senate President Expects Transportation Bill

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's Senate president says he's confident Gov. Martin O'Malley will submit a transportation funding measure early next week.
    
Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller on Friday stopped short of discussing any details about what such a measure would include. But he says he's confident an administration bill will be "read across the desk on Monday night," when lawmakers gather for session.
    
Miller, D-Calvert, met with O'Malley and House Speaker Michael Busch, D-Anne Arundel, on Thursday to talk about transportation funding.
    
Maryland faces a growing backlog on transportation projects and terrible traffic congestion.
    
The state has not raised its 23.5-cents-per-gallon gas tax since 1992. Last year, O'Malley proposed phasing in a 6 percent sales tax on gasoline, but the measure stalled.
