Miller to Leave

The Washington Times reports today that Senate President Mike Miller said that he's about to start what will probably be his last termL
"This is probably my last term," Mr. Miller, a Southern Maryland Democrat, told The Washington Times. "I've accomplished all I wanted to accomplish."

Mr. Miller, who turns 64 next month, would hand over the gavel in 2010 after serving 24 years as Senate president.

Miller also announced that Sen. Lisa Gladden would be vice chair of the Judicial Proceedings Committee and Sen. Joan Carter Conway would chair the Education, Health and Environmental Matters Committee.

The Post's Maryland Moment blog reports that House Republicans are fighting over who should lead them in the post-Ehrlich era and that it's nasty.


Blogger The League: Reassembled said...

Some say Busch may step down from the Speaker's position even before Miller retires. Not retire from the House altogether, as Miller will do fro mthe Senate, but just from the Speaker's office.

Although Busch will definitely stay through next session, The League hears he may relinquish the post by 2007 or 2008, opening the spot up for Del. Maggie McIntosh, the north Baltimore Democrat who has served in the House for 14 years and is well connected thanks to her political work.
