ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller says a special session could happen in mid-May.

Miller spoke Tuesday morning after meeting with Gov. Martin O’Malley and House Speaker Michael Busch for about an hour at the governor’s residence.

Busch says they talked about a timeline for a special session. They also discussed the fact that the governor would have to make additional cuts at the Board of Public Works by the end of May if another session isn’t held.

Busch says he needs to talk with other leaders of the House to get their thoughts.

An income tax increase that would have averted the need for about a half a billion in cuts fell apart in the waning hours of the session earlier this month.
