I wrote here about the Special Committee on State Employee Rights and Protections. The Committee apparently was going to issue a report in September, which happens to be when Maryland has its primary election. However, the Committee's work may be extended because the main target of the investigation, Joseph Steffen, recently became available to testify. This link collects The Baltimore Sun's coverage of the committee's work, including Mr. Steffen's reemergence and the suit filed by several legislators seeking to compel executive department employees to testify about Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s hiring and firing practices.
