Maryland GOP Expected To Propose Additional Cuts

Del. Anthony O'Donnell, the House minority leader, says the GOP will propose a variety of spending reductions beyond the cuts included in Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley's budget.

Last year, House Republicans proposed making hundreds of millions of dollars more in cuts than O'Malley did in his budget proposal, but the GOP's plan was rejected by the Democratic-controlled House of Delegates.

In last year's proposal, a big portion of the Republican cuts came from not funding a program that compensates school districts where education costs more. It's called the Geographic Cost-of-Education Index, and the program mostly benefits Montgomery and Prince George's Counties, as well as the city of Baltimore. All three are Democratic strongholds.
