After Legislative Session, Questions Remain on Spending

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan says it will take time before he knows whether he will fund roughly $200 million set aside in Maryland's budget for education, a cost-of-living adjustment for state employees and health care programs.

The Republican governor said Tuesday he will need to consider "how much money we have to spend on what," in the context of the state's overall budget conditions.

The Democratic-led Legislature stipulated that the money can either go to those specific purposes or back to the state's general fund.

Hogan and Democratic leaders say they are pleased with the overall outcome of the session, which ended at midnight. The closing days included a strained budget debate.

Hogan says the fact that no one got everything they wanted is a sign of bipartisan compromise.
