Jobs Legislation Will Wait Until January

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — House Speaker Michael Busch says lawmakers will discuss options for trying to increase jobs in Maryland during next week’s special session on congressional redistricting, but legislation aimed at spurring job growth won’t be taken on until the regular 90-day session in January.

Busch, D-Anne Arundel, said Thursday the General Assembly will hold hearings and presentations to define what the challenges are and what could be done to address them.

The speaker says lawmakers will talk about potential tax credits and how to do away with duplicative regulations that stand in the way of business and development.

Busch says he believes job creation legislation needs to be considered as a package and not done in a piecemeal fashion.

Gov. Martin O’Malley has called a special session to begin Monday for redistricting.

  • Wheres common sense when you need it

    Another foolish politician, completely out of touch with the people, pushing anything to do with helping the majority of people who are unemployed. They all continue to kick the can down the road, over and over again, and get NOTHING done. But then again, when you don’t have to worry about where your next doolar will come from, whats another month!
