ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is highlighting his administration's successes while noting problems the state has had with its health care exchange.

The Democrat is reflecting on his tenure Thursday as he gives his eighth and last State of the State address.

He talked about a sweeping gun-control measure the General Assembly approved last year and the state's repeal of the death penalty as notable successes. He also underscored Maryland's passage of same-sex marriage rights and a version of the Dream Act.

But the governor also discussed problems with the state's health care exchange, which has been troubled by computer issues. O'Malley said the problems are source of great frustration, but he pledged to keep working to enroll as many people as possible by March 31.
