Md. Gov. Hogan Notes Larger-Than-Expected Budget Balance

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan says Maryland ended the fiscal year with a higher-than-expected budget balance.
    
Hogan says the state's fund balance is about $295 million.
    
The Republican says about $84 million of that is from reversions from state agencies. That's $54 million more than previously expected.
    
Hogan says it's due to more careful management of state spending.
    
Maryland also benefited from about $214 million in higher-than-anticipated state revenues.
    
The governor noted the money needs to be used prudently. He says the state still has a $1.7 billion structural deficit over the next four years.
