'Fiscal Cliff" Could Halt Gas Tax Debate In Maryland

With just over a month before the Maryland General Assembly begins its 2013 session, Governor Martin O'Malley met behind closed doors this afternoon with Senate President Mike Miller, and House Speaker Michael Busch, to discuss the agenda for the meeting.

Both Miller and Busch emerged from the meeting saying an increase in the state's gasoline tax to pay for road and bridge projects was one of the issues up for discussion.

However both legislative leaders say any action on a gasoline tax increase would be put on hold if the White House and Congress do not resolve the "fiscal cliff" talks, by the time lawmakers return to session January 9.
