Delegate Haddaway Gives GOP Response To Speech

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Republican Delegate Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio is giving the Maryland GOP’s response to Gov. Martin O’Malley’s State of the State speech.

Haddaway-Riccio, who is the minority whip in the House of Delegates, said Thursday that O’Malley hasn’t cut enough from the state’s $13 billion general fund.

She says Maryland Republicans will make budget recommendations to significantly reduce the state’s deficit without raising taxes.

The Talbot County Republican says O’Malley, who is a Democrat, has relied far too much on transferring money from transportation funding and a fund to protect the environment to fill budget holes, because he hasn’t cut enough from the budget.
