Earlier this week Maryland state legislators gathered for the 2011 Special Session to discuss congressional redistricting. Earlier today, Governor Martin O’Malley signed legislation outlining Maryland’s new district map based on the 2010 Census. A press release from the Office of the Governor states:
“Over the course of Special Session, we were able to have vital and meaningful discussions about job creation and the importance of addressing our State’s infrastructure deficit as we prepare for the 2012 legislative session. Together, we can move forward on creating jobs for our families, recognizing that the most important job we create is the next one,” said Governor Martin O’Malley.
“Special Session has provided an important opportunity to fulfill our Constitutional duty while advancing ideas for creating jobs and promoting sustainable economic growth in Maryland,” said Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown, who testified before the General Assembly this week about the need to create jobs by investing in infrastructure projects. “Job creation remains our most pressing need, and I look forward to working closely with Governor O’Malley and the General Assembly to develop a jobs package that will invest in our infrastructure so we can put Marylanders back to work and build a brighter economic future.”
