In proposing budget cuts, Mr. O’Malley does Mr. Hogan a favor - Washington Post Editorial Board

About 10 percent of the spending reductions Mr. O’Malley announced for the current budget, or $40 million, will come from higher education, which he has made a consistent budget priority during his eight years in office. William E. Kirwan, chancellor of the University System of Maryland, pronounced himself “reeling” over the cuts, which he said were five times more than he had been told to expect. Looking ahead to next year, Mr. Hogan might find some help with the budget, and promote the cause of social equity, by allowing Maryland’s public colleges to do more to help themselves — specifically by raising in-state tuition and fees, especially for students from high-income families. http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/in-proposing-budget-cuts-mr-omalley-does-mr-hogan-a-favor/2015/01/11/0ce88c60-984f-11e4-aabd-d0b93ff613d5_story.html
