Hogan proposes $82 million budget trim that would include staff cuts at U-Md. - Ovetta Wiggins, Washington Post

The University System of Maryland would eliminate about 100 positions, including 41 currently filled jobs, under a plan by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) to trim $82 million from the fiscal 2017 budget to pare down spending and offset impending budget shortfalls. Budget Secretary David Brinkley said Friday that an $18.2 million cut to the University System of Maryland is part of a larger effort to close what could amount to a $250 million gap in the state’s $42 billion budget. Under the proposal, which must be approved by the state Board of Public Works, the state would cut $4 million from its allocated disparity grants, including $3.5 million of a $7 million funding increase that had been allocated to Prince George’s County.
