State House Republicans to release alternative budget

ANNAPOLIS — The Maryland House Republican caucus will be releasing an alternative state budget proposal.

The plan to be presented Tuesday will be offered on behalf of the 43 members of the minority caucus in the House.

Democrats control both the chambers in the Maryland General Assembly. Republicans routinely criticize Maryland budget proposals for spending more than the state can afford.

Last week, the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee approved changes to Gov. Martin O’Malley’s budget plan.

The changes would raise Maryland income taxes and split teacher pension costs with local governments over four years. The full Senate will be taking up the budget legislation this week. After the Senate votes on the legislation, the House of Delegates will take its turn considering modifications.
