ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Senate is scheduled to consider changes to the state’s $40.4 billion budget plan.

Two budget bills that are working in tandem to balance the state’s books for the next fiscal year will be before the Senate on Wednesday.

The House of Delegates approved the measures last week.

The House restored money for education that Gov. Larry Hogan had scaled back to help balance the state’s books in the long term. The House also restored money for a 2 percent cost-of-living adjustment for state employees.

The House and Senate will need to work out differences between the two chambers before the scheduled adjournment of the Legislature on April 13.
