O’Malley is expected to appear as part of a panel of governors attending the National Governors Association meeting in Washington. Likely topics will include the potential impact of the federal sequestration on states.

In the run-up to last fall’s election, O’Malley emerged as a regular on the Sunday talk shows, appearing in his capacity as chairman of the Democratic Governors Association and as a leading surrogate for President Obama. O’Malley’s DGA tenure ended in December.

Aides say O’Malley, who is regularly mentioned as a potential 2016 presidential candidate, has been largely focused on the Maryland legislation session since it started in January.

He has surfaced on a few national talk shows since then, including MSNBC’s “Hardball” to talk about gun control and on a Saturday edition of CBS’s “This Morning” broadcast on Super Bowl weekend from New Orleans, where the Baltimore Ravens were playing.
