They’ll be back!

Oct 20, 2008

Maryland’s Board of Public Works recently approved 349 million dollars worth of budget cuts. The cuts include hundreds of state positions, plus cuts to schools, colleges, health care, roads – everything.

State officials say this is only the beginning of their cuts. They say they will be back with much deeper cuts in December and even more during the next legislative session in the middle of January.

No state job is safe and every vital social program is threatened.
