ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Gov. Larry Hogan will be talking about his budget plan.
Hogan is scheduled Thursday to discuss the budget proposal he is submitting to Maryland lawmakers this week.
Hogan and advisers have been working on budget issues for weeks. The new governor has been bracing lawmakers for strong medicine.
Maryland is facing a projected shortfall of roughly $750 million for the next fiscal year. Maryland lawmakers will be working on the budget for most of the rest of the legislative session, which began last week in Annapolis.
Hogan campaigned mostly on tackling state economic problems and cutting taxes.
During his inaugural address on Wednesday, Hogan said it's time to get state government "off our backs and out of our pockets" to grow the private sector and put people back to work.
