Maryland lawmakers will be wrestling with a bigger budget problem than they expected, after officials revised the state's revenues down by about $238 million on Thursday for the current fiscal year and the next.
A top Maryland budget analyst urged lawmakers on Monday to create a greater budget cushion than the one included in Gov. Martin O'Malley's budget plan.
Warren Deschenaux, the General Assembly's chief budget analyst, pointed out a projected budget deficit of about half a billion dollars in fiscal year 2016.
"You should not be shy about leaving fund balance if you have the opportunity in your process, because it and more will be needed to get you out of '16 - however you elect to get out of '14 and '15," Deschenaux said.
