O'Malley, Biden to talk broadband
President Obama's budget included $10 billion for the "development and deployment" of a national "wireless broadband network," according to a White House press release. The network is intended for public safety agencies.
On Monday, O'Malley pushed a similar message in Maryland, stopping in Howard County with Sen. Barbara Mikulski and County Executive Ken Ulman to launch a state-wide push for more access to high speed internet.
Maryland's chief executive has been racking up the travel miles. He landed in Maryland Saturday after a 10-day trade mission in Asia and admitted to feeling a little "blurry" on Monday, just before a groundbreaking for a new sports field in Baltimore's Patterson Park.
On Tuesday after briefing reporters on the Asia trip in Annapolis, he jetted off to Chicago for a two-day Democratic Governors Association regional policy meeting in the windy city. (Fun fact about the DGA conference: There appears to be an app for it. Really.)
