Maryland analysts to give fiscal briefing to lawmakers

Jan 26, 2016

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland analysts are scheduled to give lawmakers a fiscal briefing.

The Maryland Department of Legislative Services is set to give an overview of the state's budget and financial landscape on Tuesday.

Analysts will be giving the presentation to the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee and the House Appropriations Committee. Those are the two panels that do most of the budget work in the Maryland General Assembly before bringing it before the House and Senate.

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan submitted the state's $43.2 billion budget plan last week. The plan includes a surplus of about $449 million and a rainy day fund of about $1.1 billion. Lawmakers in the Democrat-led General Assembly will be working on the budget plan for most of the legislative session.
