ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland Gov. Wes Moore’s administration is proposing nearly $149 million in midyear spending reductions. The plan unveiled on Wednesday would steer more money to help fund rising participation in a program to help pay for child care and Medicaid as state officials continue to wrestle with budget challenges. Moore will present the cuts next week to the Board of Public Works, which has the authority to cut up to 25% of the state’s budget. The three-member spending panel is composed of the governor, the treasurer, and comptroller, all of whom are Democrats.
