Hogan Not Spending $80M Set Aside By Maryland Legislature

August 3rd, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Gov. Larry Hogan has decided not to spend $80 million that Maryland's legislature had fenced off for specific budget areas. David Brinkley, the governor's budget secretary, briefed reporters about the governor's decision Wednesday. Brinkley says the Republican governor decided against releasing the money because of softening state revenues from income tax collections. He says the governor is trying to shore up the state's bottom line to better deal with any type of revenue revisions the state may face.
