CAMBRIDGE, Md. (AP) - State and local officials in Maryland are wondering what will be cut next due to budget challenges.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael Busch spoke Friday at a conference of local government officials in Cambridge.

Miller, D-Calvert, says nothing will be sacrosanct as Gov.-elect Larry Hogan and lawmakers work to fill an estimated $750 million deficit for the next fiscal year.

Busch, D-Anne Arundel, says a lot of tough decisions will need to be made. He’s encouraging lawmakers to take a deep breath when they get to Annapolis next week for the start of the 90-day legislative session and consider all the options.

The conference was held by the Maryland Association of Counties. It’s a nonprofit group that advocates for county issues in state government.
