Md. budget negotiators confront a shifting deficit number

Democratic lawmakers say they are surprised and concerned that a proposed supplemental budget proposed by Gov. Larry Hogan reduced the amount of the structural deficit that would be paid down in the coming year. The issue is one of a number of items the House of Delegates and Senate will attempt to resolve as they work to complete the budget before the end of session in a week. “(Hogan) put in a supplemental budget that brings him, in terms of the structural deficit, not nearly as far along as the House (budget),” said Del. Maggie McIntosh.
