Md. Senate to Hear Minimum Wage Bill

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A proposal to raise Maryland's minimum wage is going before a state Senate panel.
    
The Senate Finance Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on Thursday.
    
The measure would raise the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour by 2016. The bill also would index the minimum wage to keep up with inflation.
    
Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley is making the bill a priority this legislative session.
    
A House committee held a hearing on the measure earlier this week.
