(St. Mary’s, MD)  —  Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley is set to give his annual State of the State address today at noon in Annapolis.  St. Mary’s College political scientist Todd Eberly says he expects O’Malley to talk about the way the state has endured better than many others through a slumping economy, and offer an optimistic vision of what the future holds.  The single biggest issue in Annapolis right now is the state’s upcoming budget, with lawmakers required to fill a budget gap in excess of a billion dollars.  Eberly thinks O’Malley will again hint that while he himself won’t propose any tax increases, he’s open to proposals from the legislature.  Otherwise, he says you can probably expect a speech that’s built more on vision than substance.
