Senate Panel Expresses Concern about State Center

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Members of a Maryland Senate committee are expressing concern about how an upcoming decision on the State Center redevelopment project in Baltimore could affect the state's debt limit.

Sen. Edward Kasemeyer, the chairman of the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee, said Tuesday he will send a letter to the Board of Public Works outlining concerns.

The board is scheduled to consider moving forward with part of the project next week.

But senators want to know more about whether approval could cause the state to breach its capital debt limit in fiscal year 2018. The state's debt limit is not supposed to exceed 8 percent of state revenues.

The redevelopment of the massive state office complex calls for mixed-use development. The total cost has been estimated at about $1.5 billion.
