Maryland lawmakers work to finalize state budget - Leila Weah, WMDT

The budget includes everything from education funding to environmental needs.
Senator Mary Beth Carozza said she’s pleased with the momentum they have been making to finalize the funds, and the advocacy that the community has brought to the table. “Were in session for 90 days and that is our one constitutional requirements, to do that [budget] within the 90 days,” Senator Carozza said. “We are on track with the senate moving first on the budget, and I am very happy that there are no new taxes in the budget. I’m glad to see some of those community college cuts have been restored.” Senator Carozza added if it wasn’t for the lobbying of Wor-Wic college students, the educational budget would not have been restored.
