LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley will be highlighting the findings of a commission’s report on transportation funding during a speech to the Maryland Chamber of Commerce.
The governor will address Maryland business leaders Wednesday evening in Linthicum.
The blue ribbon commission has recommended that Maryland raise an additional $800 million annually to address huge transportation infrastructure needs. The commission provided a menu of options on how to raise that money in February.
While O’Malley won’t propose the exact mix of revenues that might reach the goal in his speech Wednesday night, an O’Malley spokeswoman says he will be underscoring the commission’s assessments to the state’s business leaders.
The chamber is holding its annual membership meeting and business hall of fame awards dinner.
