No Tax Hikes, Serious Cuts In Hogan's Proposed Budget

Gov. Larry Hogan unveiled his fiscal year 2018 budget proposal Tuesday, saying it spends less than last year's budget and doesn't raise taxes.

Hogan said there are no serious cuts in the budget, and that the state rainy day fund is being used to balance the budget.

The governor said he is introducing a bill requiring mandate relief. He also wants the General Assembly to put aside a "tax-and-spend mentality," and he is introducing the Fiscal Responsibility Act.

Hogan said education spending increases in this budget proposal with $334 million proposed for school construction and $1.5 billion for higher education.
