O’Malley Announces $690M For Red Line in Baltimore

The MARC commuter train between Baltimore and Washington will run on Saturdays and Sundays starting in December, Gov. Martin O’Malley announced Wednesday.

The announcement was part of a new package of transportation projects that will cost a combined $1.5 billion. The funding was made possible by an increase in the state’s gasoline tax approved by the General Assembly this year.

“Addressing our transportation needs in Baltimore, and throughout Maryland, remains one of the toughest challenges we face as a state,” said Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who is seeking the Democratic nomination to succeed O’Malley as governor.

It became such a challenge because they looted the Transportation Fund.

Since Obama has his Red Line, it's only fair that wannabe O'Malley gets one too!

And while they spend all this $ on Baltimore the Eastern Shore roads are crumbling and potholing.
