ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Governor Martin O'Malley gave his farewell State of the State address.
Among the many topics: minimum wage and security. According to O'Malley, violent crime is now at a 30-year low with fewer people incarcerated in Maryland's prisons today than at any time since 1994.
And, the discussion continued on raising minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by 2016. O'Malley said there's still more work to do.
"I see a rapidly growing middle-class whose standard of living is rising," said O'Malley. "I can see the year that is coming when not a single child in Maryland will die a violent death."
O'Malley also touched on his previous seven years in office touting last year's sweeping gun-control measure and the state's repeal of the death penalty.
