The Baltimore Sun also covered the discussion – from its coverage:

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller said Tuesday morning that the Senate, House and governor are have different ideas about how to close the state’s $1 billion projected budget shortfall, and he’s planning to send several options to the floor including a “doomsday” plan made up entirely by cuts.

Miller said he’s also considering a budget plan that would involve “different revenues” than those Gov. Martin O’Malley suggested in his spending plan, but did not specify what any would be.
