ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Gov. Martin O'Malley is calling on lawmakers to take up the tough challenge of addressing transportation funding this session.

O'Malley gave his seventh State of the State speech of his administration on Wednesday.

The Democratic governor also touted investments in his budget to improve public education and build new schools. The governor's budget proposal includes $336 million for school construction.

O'Malley also says Maryland has done a good job getting students to college, but he says the state needs to do more to get them through.

O'Malley also pushed for his proposal to help develop offshore wind energy. The measure, which has failed to pass in the last two years, could raise residents' electric bills by $1.50 a month.

Also during his speech, the governor repeated his calls for state lawmakers to ban assault weapons and repeal the death penalty.
