Maryland Legislators to Begin Debates on Death Penalty and Gun Control

Early mornings and late nights expected


It will be a full week about guns and capital punishment in the Maryland Senate. 

Floor debate will begin Tuesday on two of the most controversial proposals in Gov. Martin O'Malley's legislative package. 

Senators will face early mornings and late nights as the chamber tackles gun-control and repealing the death penalty in the same week.  A memo to sent to senators Monday night said they will be called in at 8 a.m. Wednesday through Friday and that they can expect to stay late on Wednesday and Thursday nights to get all of the work done.
