Gov. Martin O'Malley says his budget plan for the next fiscal year aims to boost jobs and protect the state from the financial uncertainty caused by what he described as a potentially self-destructive Congress that will consider deep spending cuts in the next several weeks.
T. Eloise Foster, the governor's budget secretary, said the proposal will only postpone getting the state to 80 percent of pension funding - a mark often cited as a sign of a healthy system - from 2024 to 2025.
Foster said the state would save $175 million under the proposal over fiscal years 2014 and 2015.
