“Maryland has enough developed lands to service its expected population for decades. An MDP analysis shows that all of the state’s projected growth – an estimated 800,000 additional residents – through 2035 could fit within designated growth areas,” Maryland Department of Planning Sec. Richard E. Hall writes.

Francis Underwood meet C. William Frick.

The fictional Congressional whip with machiavellian ambitions of taking over the presidency collided yesterday with the Maryland House of Delegates parliamentarian with ambitions of being attorney general over the issue of expanding tax credits for film and television production in the state.

Will anti-bullying campaign help Rice’s case?

Ravens running back Ray Rice has landed endorsements like M&T Bank and nutritional supplements like Ripfire Xcelerate and BodyArmor SuperDrink. He has also taken action against bullying through his “Ray of Hope” campaign.

But after Rice and his fiancée, Janay Palmer, were arrested Saturday morning, will the Rice-endorsed brands and cause be affected?

Two Baltimore County Republicans have released a video they say is an attempt to bring some truth in advertising to Maryland state government.

“That’s what Annapolis really needs — fact checking,” Del. Susan L.M. Aumann said in a video with Del. Kathy Szeliga.

In a campy video posted Sunday on YouTube, the pair discuss Democratic claims about the state budget, the gas tax and the state health benefit exchange website.

So how do the “fact checkers” stand up to outside scrutiny of their own statements? Here’s what they said, and what we found.

It didn't take long for Del. James E. Malone Jr. to get emotional after finding out he was one of two recipients of the House of Delegates Sen. Charles "Mac" Mathias award.

Almost as soon as Malone reached the rostrum, the delegate got emotional—much to the chagrin of those who incorrectly predicted he would get weepy on his way up.

"I know there was a pool on when I would cry," Malone said. "Now I know why the Speaker told me he had Feb 12."

A political action committee that endorsed Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown for Maryland governor is demanding an apology from a Democratic opponent over comments made about Brown’s service in Iraq.

Attorney General Doug Gansler told a gathering of the Tech Council of Maryland in Bethesda that Brown’s leadership skills were questionable after being asked a question about what could be learned from the roll out of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange.

Sen. Allan H. Kittleman sure knows how to make friends within the General Assembly.

Kittleman, R-Howard, is wrapping up what will be his final year in the state Senate and as a parting gift, he’s sponsoring a bill that would end the per diem subsidy for hotel rooms for about two-thirds of state lawmakers.

Harford County Executive David R. Craig is expected Tuesday morning to make an announcement regarding a “major tax cut that will be part of his campaign for the Republican nomination for Maryland governor.

“It is a massive re-thinking of the Maryland tax code and budget,” said Jim Pettit, a spokesman for the campaign.

You may have had the day off work because of the 15 inches of snow (or more) that blanketed the area but the Maryland General Assembly was open (mostly) for business.
Since most legislators spend the night in Annapolis, the General Assembly rarely closes down. In fact, it’s only happened about three times in the last four decades or so.

When Sen. Joan Carter Conway recommitted her controversial college program bill back to her committee Tuesday she did so with a warning: It will be back.

Conway made the promise just before announcing she would send the bill back to committee rather than let it proceed to a final vote in the Senate.

“It hurts my heart,” Conway said.
