Administration Refuses to Provide Plan to Address Budget Shortfall

As reported by the Baltimore Business Journal, Budget Secretary David Brinkley submitted a letter to the General Assembly stating that the Administration will not provide a plan now to outline how it plans to address the fiscal 2019 budget shortfall. From the article,

Maryland faces a $700 million shortfall in fiscal 2019, and the General Assembly’s budget committees had given the Hogan administration a July 1 deadline for submitting a report on how it will fix the gap. In a letter responding to the request, Secretary of Budget and Management David R. Brinkley declined to provide a plan and said the legislature’s request skirts the state’s budgeting procedures.
