Senate president re-writing O’Malley’s budget plan

February 21st, 2012 by WCBC Radio

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller said Tuesday morning that the Senate, House and governor are have different ideas about how to close the state's $1 billion projected budget shortfall, and he's planning to send several options to the floor including a "doomsday" plan made up entirely by cuts. The Baltimore Sun reports Miller said he's also considering a budget plan that would involve "different revenues" than those Gov. Martin O'Malley suggested in his spending plan, but did not specify what any would be.

The Senate president added that his chamber is getting considerable "push back" from critics of O'Malley's proposal to cap income tax deductions.
