***TOMORROW***GOVERNOR MARTIN O’MALLEY TO DISCUSS
IMPACT OF SEQUESTER IN MARYLAND
ANNAPOLIS, MD (February 26, 2013) – TOMORROW, Governor Martin O’Malley will visit FLIR Systems in Elkridge, an advanced manufacturing business that employs middle-skill workers, to discuss the impact of the federal sequester in Maryland and urge Congress to act to avoid automatic cuts.
Maryland has recovered nearly 81 percent of the jobs lost during the Bush recession and maintains the eighth fastest jobs recovery rate in the nation, and the fastest jobs recovery rate in the region. Federal sequestration can hinder Maryland’s ability to create jobs, and provide vital services to the state’s most vulnerable families and children.
