MoCo Maintenance of Effort Waiver Approved (Updated)

Surprise, surprise! Our sources tell us that the State Department of Education has approved Montgomery County's FY 2011 Maintenance of Effort waiver request on a 7-5 vote. Wicomico County's waiver request was also approved. That means MoCo's statehouse delegation will not have to beg Big Daddy and Speaker Mike Busch for another bill canceling a state fine. Amidst all the budget gloom, this is a welcome bit of good news.

Update: The Gazette confirmed our report.
