Hogan Announces Budget Framework

October 11th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has announced a budget framework for how he proposes to use the state’s $2.5 billion surplus, which was announced earlier this month. The five-point plan includes boosting the state’s rainy-day fund, tax relief for retirees, tax relief for other Marylanders, help for underserved people and “enhancement” for state employees — likely in the form of compensation. Hogan’s plan didn’t include specifics on many of the points, which he called “broad outlines.”
