Governor O’Malley Speaks on Fiscal Responsibility

 

The legacy of conservative governance combined with a faltering economy has left our country and many of our states facing a fundamental budget challenge: how to restore fiscal responsibility while making needed investments in infrastructure, energy, health care, education, housing, and elsewhere.

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley has been a leader in demonstrating progressive fiscal responsibility and will discuss his efforts to close an inherited $1.7 billion structural deficit, while making critical investments to protect and invest in Maryland’s priorities.

Governor O’Malley states, "In Maryland, we have tried to practice a different kind of politics–the ‘politics of posterity’–to make decisions–sometimes very hard decisions–based on our shared values, and our desire to choose a better future for ourselves, our children, and our posterity." Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund as we host Governor O’Malley for this stimulating discussion on fiscal responsibility.
