called the session after the senate failed to make a deal. >> this is back to work for three days for maryland lawmakers after having been called back by martin o'malley. they are expected to take a new budget deal and leaders of both the house and the senate. under these deal, what would be called for in this proposal is a tax increase of people making more than $100,000 or households making more than $150,000. a new proposal on the table includes almost $600 million in further spending cuts than originally proposed that was put forward at the beginning of the regular session back in january. during the regular session lawmakers failed to agree on any type of revenue packet forcing them to pass the doomsday budget including cuts in things like education and public safety with
many not happy with that. it's one of the reasons why they're back here for the special session. governor o'malley is confident this will work out. that lawmakers will be able to reach a deal over the next couple of days to get a new budget. one of the issues that they did not take during that regular session was expanding gambling. so that will not been an issue during these three days and the governor has saying he's not opposed to calling them back up this summer to take up that issue as well. >> all right. thank you, brianne. it's :03. the virginia general assembly set to end for the year. they will select more than three dozen judges to feel vacancies all across virginia. >> a developing story from wall street where more heads are expected to roll after jpmorgan's chase blunder. three executives will resign

senator from ohio. knows both ends of pennsylvania avenue. but another top person might be tim pawlenty he's their backup guy. mitch daniels the governor of indiana would be on the list. the only hint of paprika in our vanilla here is the paul ryan, the budget chairman from wisconsin who is controversial, but would help them in the rush belt. >> and the other idea about going against what happened four years ago, really putting the focus on the economy and knowing that that might be that trigger issue. >> that's why we are hearing so little from mitt romney about gay marriage. even in his speech in battleground virginia at liberty university, just a sentence or two about marriage. he wants to stay on the economy today. the obama campaign is engaging the economy in their own way.
they're starting their assault on mitt romney's bane capital record. >> always good stuff. you can read more about it in "politico." thank you. the president has busy day in the big apple. he will deliver a commencement address in bonner college in new york city. and scheduled to tape an appearance on "the view." let's switch gears from politics to the baseball diamond. the washington nationals is going to be without wilson ramos if their rest of the season because of what happened right there. he tore his a.c.l. in his right knee during saturday's game against the reds. the game the nats won. jesus flores will take over for ramos. the nats called up sandy leon to back up flores. special mother's day. at dodgers stadium. the game kicked off with the mothers of seven players throwing off the first pitch to their son. i like that. after trying out, derek jeter
