State of the State

The pace is picking up in Annapolis. Governor O'Malley has appointed Tom Perez to the cabinet. I'm a big fan of Mr. Perez. The legislature is considering a ban on driving while using a cell phone. Good Idea.
The Sun has looked at Governor O'Malley's agenda and pronounced it "centrist." The story does have a good run down of the Gov's priorities. It looks like the Gov. wants to focus on Governing competently, thats a refreshing change. Peter Franchot was sworn in as Comptroller, probably the the 2nd or third most powerful position in Maryland Government. Its good to see a real liberal and a real Democrat in that office. Meanwhile, the Legislature is trying to figure out a way to pay for increasing the availability of health care. I say Universal Health Care would solve their problems, if the Governator can figure that out, why can't we?
