O’Malley to appear on 'Morning Joe'
Taking his latest turn on the national stage, Gov. Martin O’Malley will appear on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program Friday to weigh in on the national debate over job creation and to discuss Maryland’s projected 2012 budget surplus.
O’Malley, who appeared on the program in April, has stepped up his presence in Washington since taking over as chairman of the Democratic Governors Association last year. He has been an aggressive supporter of the $447 billion jobs plan that President Barack Obama unveiled earlier this month.
This week, the governor said that he may ask the General Assembly to pass a Maryland specific jobs plan during its special session next month, though few details are available. On the same day, Comptroller Peter Franchot announced that tax revenues in Maryland' exceeded projections by $195 million.
