ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Board of Public Works will delay its consideration of whether to abolish 63 positions in the state’s Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

The board, which includes Gov. Larry Hogan, Treasurer Nancy Kopp and Comptroller Peter Franchot, was scheduled to take up the proposal on Wednesday. The board delayed consideration of the proposal since Kopp won’t be attending the meeting.

Hogan, a Republican, made the proposal to the board to save roughly $3 million.

The proposal was delayed at the board’s last meeting at the comptroller’s request to provide more time for review.

The 63 positions are in the department’s Human Resources Services Division.
