Md. House Speaker Seeks Assurance From Hogan on Education Funding

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland House Speaker Michael Busch says he wants to see more assurance from Gov. Larry Hogan that he will support restored funding for education and pay for state employees before committing to some of the governor's legislative priorities.

Busch, an Anne Arundel County Democrat, updated reporters on bumpy budget talks Thursday.

Busch says a strong majority of Democrats and Republicans voted for budget legislation that includes restored funding that had been removed by the Republican governor to help address a budget shortfall. Hogan would need to approve the restored funds.

Hogan has expressed concern about how his priorities will fare in the House. The governor says he's not expecting to win support for everything, and Democrats who control the Legislature won't get everything they want, either.
