DC, MD, VA Spending Millions On Presidential Inauguration 01-14-2009 3:33 AM (Washington, DC) -- The Inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama has already cost cash-strapped Maryland eleven-million dollars, and state leaders want to be reimbursed. At a news conference today on Inaugural preparations, Governor Martin O'Malley said the federal government did not set aside money to help local governments. O'Malley says he, Senator Barbara Mikulski and Representative Elijah Cummings will seek reimbursement from the feds. Virginia and the District are also being hit by unbudgeted expenses. In all, the Inauguration is costing the three jurisdictions some 75-million dollars.
