MD Lawmakers Take Furlough Days

The furlough plan for lawmakers in Maryland looks a lot like the one the O'Malley administration is using for state employees. Senate President Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael Busch unveiled the plan on Thursday.

Legislative offices will close for five days around holiday weekends. There will also be additional furlough days based on salary that could add up to five additional days. The plan affects 633 Maryland General Assembly and Department of Legislative Services employees.

It will save $1.1 million. The salaries of state lawmakers cannot be reduced, but they can give back up to ten days pay. Last year, 85% of lawmakers took part in a voluntary giveback when furloughs were implemented.
