The Maryland General Assembly is sailing into the last day of this year’s legislative session on Monday under unusual circumstances: Bills tackling the budget, gun control, repealing the death penalty and other major issues already have been sent to Gov. Martin O’Malley for his signature.
There’s a renewed effort to do away with the death penalty in Maryland. Groups pushing for a repeal join forces as lawmakers get ready to take up the issue at this winter’s General Assembly.
