ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Maryland's annual 90-day legislative session is getting under way.

The session, which starts at noon Wednesday, has a new dynamic this year due to changes in the state's political calendar. A filing deadline for candidacies in all 188-seats in the state Legislature falls in the middle of the session. Statewide offices also are on the ballot, and term-limited Gov. Martin O'Malley is entering his last year as governor.

Some of the major issues on tap include proposals to raise the minimum wage and adjust the state's stormwater management fees. Criminal justice measures also are expected to be leading topics in the session.

O'Malley, House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller are scheduled to talk about the session Wednesday morning on the Marc Steiner show on WEAA.
