    Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is scheduled to meet with the Legislature's presiding officers about holding a special session.

    The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday in Annapolis with House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller.

    O'Malley noted the meeting in a letter to Miller on Friday.

    O'Malley is considering when to hold a special session to repair the state budget after lawmakers failed to pass a revenue package that was needed to avoid about a half a billion dollars in cuts.

    O'Malley has said he wants to hold a special session. But he wants to meet only after the House and Senate reach a consensus on the revenue package, which included income tax increases for people who make more than $100,000 a year.
