House GOP Caucus To Discuss Budget

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland House Republican Caucus has scheduled a news conference to discuss the possibility of taxes being considered in a special session.

The caucus plans to observe “Tax Day” by talking about cuts that are now part of the state’s budget, after the Democrat-controlled Legislature failed to pass a revenue package on the last day of the session to take the place of the cuts.

A compromise revenue plan that would have raised income taxes on people who make more than $100,000 became bogged down in negotiations before the session ended.

A panel of House and Senate negotiators reached a compromise with less than four hours remaining in the session, but the Legislature adjourned before passing the tax increases by midnight last Monday.
