"I was so excited last night I was running around in a circle," she said Wednesday morning.
She added: "It means that our kids, who are in school now, will in their lifetime see new schools, reconstructed schools, rehabilitated schools, first-class schools in Baltimore. It is historic, and I'm extremely proud that my administration and all of our partners were able to work with the legislators to get this done. I pledged in front of thousands of school kids during the rally that when the confetti fell at sine die that we would have a deal, that I wasn't going to take no for an answer. I'm very proud the legislature has approved this plan so we can move forward.
