Governor O’Malley to Deliver His Final State of the State

Governor O’Malley will deliver the final State of the State address of his tenure today, making a case for his legislative priorities this session and reflecting on his prior seven years as Governor. As reported by the Washington Post:

Much of the speech will be devoted to achievements during difficult fiscal times and the goal-driven system of governing O’Malley has utilized since taking office in 2007, the aide said. He requested anonymity to speak more freely about the governor’s plans.

While governors typically use such addresses to advocate for a laundry list of initiatives, O’Malley will focus heavily on the case for raising the state’s $7.25-an-hour minimum wage, the aide said.
